Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

    This may not be the grandest cinema in vienna, but it's cosy, comfortable and old fashioned. The screen isn't huge but it's big enough. The thing that drew me to this cinema is that it plays the classic 1949 Vienna set masterpiece 'The Third Man' around three times a week.

    I spent a rainy Sunday afternoon visiting filming locations from the movie before going to see it. If your a fan of the film or a lover of cinema in general then this is an absolute must.

    When in Vienna, I often look to check what is on here or in its sister cinema De France. Comfortable and good value, though I didn't rate the coffee that I had just before the film, though the foyer is comfortable

    Best cinema in Vienna together with Gartenbaukino. From the outside, the entrance with the mirrors, the posters, the tiny kiosk, the inside, all beautiful.

    The Gartenbaukino manages to be both: nostalgic and up-to-date. Showing the most exciting films of todays Arthouse-world, aswell as retrospectives and special-screenings of classics, the Gartenbaukino is a real treat for film-lovers.The screen is huge, the architecture pleasent, the catering nice. Sometimes there are also film-related parties in the foyer. It's great that the cinema is still there, and i hope it will be there forever, forever ever.

    We are musical theatre fans on holiday in Europe from Australia. We are fans of Stephen Schwartz, composer of Wicked, and noticed the flyer to this show, whilst we were in Vienna. We noticed Schwartz composed the score to this German musical and decided to attend. We were able to book good seats only a day or two prior on a weeknight.

    English subtitles are available for non-German speakers on screens on the sides of the stage so you understand every word said. However, it is best not to be too distracted reading them as you miss the action on stage.

    The show tells the story behind the creation of Mozart's opera The Magic Flute from the perspective of Emanuel Schikaneder and his wife Eleonore. Emanuel wrote the libretto for the opera.

    The songs are catchy, the comedy is accessible and the costumes are dazzling.

    Overall an enjoyable evening's entertainment.

    I spent a pleasant evening there watching "Once Upon a Time in Hollywood". The movie has was pretty small, but quite normal as I wanted to watch the original English version.
    I must Say that the pop corn was also good.
    It's a quiet cozy movie theater in heart of historical part of Vienna.

    Every cinephil should visit AFM. Not just to see excellent movies (which are very strong reason to go there) but to feel the atmosphere of better times and more relaxed times... At the AFM you can have a decent cup of coffee, buy different memorabilias (books, DVDs, posters etc), become a member of the Museum, carry out a research but eventually and unfortunately at one point you must leave the place.

    Stopped here for lunch & sat outside....it would have been lovely as the sun was shining but the massive crane & truck unloading immediately next to our heads on a Saturday afternoon was a bit off putting! Not the restaurants fault though. The food however was very good, nothing fancy but all very tasty.

    Although now a multi cinema screen building Apollo Das Kino was a wonderful looking building we passed as we were pub and bar hopping around this part of town and what a great find.
    I love the various type of architectural styles Vienna possesses, from ancient, old and modern, theres something for everyone to enjoy and Apollo Das Kino was a building that caught my eye.
    It looks like it's an art deco building, beautifully illuminated at night, made for some great photographic opportunities.
    I never went to see a film here but I loved the look of this building which is located on a street called Gumpendorferstraße and most definitely well worth checking out.

    Whilst visiting Vienna, we went looking for a restaurant off the beaten track, we didn't need to go far as this place is only a short walk from the museum quarter.
    The decor is old world and does not look as if it has not been changed in year, although it is very clean and interesting. The staff are very attentive and help to explain the menu. We went for lunch and it looks like local business men use this establishment, a clue to how nice the food is.

    Walking around the area towards Karlsplatz we came across this interesting looking theatre/cinema/ exhibition building,to be honest not sure what it was but it looked interesting ,it was just closing for the night when we passed but we could see some artwork on the walls through the windows and the word Kino possibly alludes to some cinemagraphic offerings,not sure but on my next holiday to Vienna I am most certainly going to visit here.
    Easy to locate on Schwarzenbergplatz and most definitely well worth checking out

    Very old school feel. Sound of pop corn popping away. Very authentic. Really enjoyed the movie. “House that jack built” was different and worth a watch.

    However... the seats are rather uncomfortable. That aside, I really enjoyed my time there.
