Cinema Samobor

Citizens of Samobor watched films in their town even before World War II. By 1954, films were screened at a private cinema, which then merged with the People’s House Educational Institution. The House building, today 6 Matica Hrvatska Square, became the CINEMA. In almost half a century, the cinema presented more than 5000 film titles and hosted around 4,200,000 viewers.

From the very beginning, the cinema acted as the central social venue for all generations. Throughout its existence, the cinema staff has always tried to provide a most pleasant experience, from top rated listings, to the inevitable hospitality to its visitors.

Still today, when it makes possible for people to see the latest hits only days after their world premieres, Samobor’s cinema strives for improvement.

In 2013, the cinema was digitised as part of the national programme of Independent Cinema Digitisation. Films are now screened from a digital Barco DP2K-15C projector. Digitisation project also gave the theatre a new film screen and a sound system.

The building that houses the cinema also includes the Prica Gallery with a permanent exhibition of paintings by Zlatko Prica and classical music concerts, a small hall used for lectures, exhibitions, presentations etc., and a lobby also used as display space.
