So we don’t get bored. Not ever!
We love planning and producing evetns. We have welcomed a few of the biggest artists in the world along with brilliant stand-up comedians. But we find the Icelandic artists just as fun and love making their already great sets come to life during a great show. We have also set up theater performances that have gone on to live on for years.
We’re the local distributor for the film studios 20th Century Fox and Sony Pictures. We also participate in production of Icelandic films and work very closely with almost all of the Icelandic producers on distributing local films to the Icelandic public. Our biggest partners in local films are RVK Studios, Zik Zak Filmworks, The Icelandicc Film Company, True North and many more.
Our cinemas operate in three different places.
In Kópavogur you‘ll find the most popular and the most technically advanced cinema in Iceland, providing guests with the best of the best in terms of visuals and sound. All rooms have Barco Lasers and Dolby 7.2 and the new Smárabíó MAX room uses 4K Barco Laser and Dolby Atmos sound system. The cinema can sit more than 1.000 people at a time in 5 different show rooms. It was the first cinema to invite the Icelandic people to sport screenings using 3D technology. It’s goal is clear: To provide its guests with the best of the best.
In the town of Akureyri you‘ll find one of the oldest cinemas of the country which is now screening films in two rooms.
In Reykjavík you‘ll find the lovely home of Icelandic films which has hosted many film festivals over the years. It opened in 1961 and at that time it only had one show room which was instantly filled with the cinema lovers of the capital. In 1989 the house grew bigger and four smaller show rooms were added, with a total of 840 seats. On May 1st 2007 Sena took over Haskólabíó‘s screenings and the house was renovated from top to bottom, making it more accessible and more comfortable for the visitors. Háskólabíó has a big story and an even bigger soul.
