If you are one an avid movie goer and are one of those people who don’t want to miss on watching a movie on the big screen, even while on vacation, then you are in luck because in Budapest the city shares the same thing. The people of Budapest are known to be fervent movie goers. Even if before what they used to have were only single screens and the different cinemas also had different types of picture and sound quality, meaning not really up to standards yet, this didn’t stop them. They still went to their local cinemas regularly to watch that movie they’ve been waiting for.
You don’t have to worry about the screens, sound and picture quality though. Even since malls started to spring up in 1995, the quality of cinemas in Budapest also quality cinemas also started to spring up. These cinemas now have multiple screens and are air conditioned for the guests’ comfort.
Budapest also has a number of cinemas that offer the VIP treatment. So if you would really want to have the utmost movie experience, then you are in for a treat. Budapest cinemas that have VIP rooms have unlimited snacks available for all the guests and best of all you get to sit on a push leather chair while enjoying the movie. These are of course a little bit more expensive than the regular cinemas but you can be assured that the experience is definitely worth it.
If you would want to experience watching a movie in one of the older pre-1995 era cinemas though, there are some single screen cinemas available in the city. While most of these types of cinemas had closed down in the coming of the multiple screened theaters found in malls, a number remain open. The single cinemas that remain open are members of the Art Movie network and here you will get to see Hungarian and international movies that are not mainstream.
