Awangarda 2 Art. House
Plac Jana Pawła II 2/3 Olsztyn
Awangarda 2 is the cinema with the longest tradition in Olsztyn. It is a small, intimate cinema associated with Sieć Kin Studyjnych i Lokalnych (the Association of Art Houses and Local Cinemas) and with the European association of art houses Europa Cinemas.
Between 1911, when the cinema came into being, and 2011 its premises were in the tenement house by Stare Miasto street in Olsztyn. In 1990 Awangarda became a private cinema and in 2011 it moved to the building belonging to Książnica Polska.
Despite the change of the premises, the atmosphere of the cinema is still unique. It is the only facility in the city where one can see author’s and controversial movies which are far different from the usual commercial ones, as well as the works of young Polish and European artists. At the weekends there are organised cinematic mornings for the youngest patrons.
The screenings take place in two auditoria: the cinema one, with traditional chairs, a pearl screen and a digital projector, and the club one, where movies can be watched on a sofa by a table, with a cup of coffee. Apart from that, in the latter, there are also held cultural debates and meetings with authors. Moreover, hot discussions take place in the cinema Literary and Cinematic Café (Kawiarnia Literacka i Filmowa “KLiF”).
Tickets can be booked via phone, SMS or e-mail In the evenings and at the weekends the entrance is at Św. Wojciech street.
