Guided tours

With the cinema nearing its one hundredth birthday we invite you to take a closer look behind the curtain and get to know the unique architectural monument and its place in cinema history throughout the ages


The "Splendid Palace" cinema has delighted several generations of moviegoers with its first-class cinema film program and various cinema events. The cinema founded in 1923 is also able to offer fascinating historical evidence and stories about cinema and movie viewing habits at the beginning of the last century, in the Soviet years and today. The architecture and interior of the cinema building is no less interesting and worth exploring, which allows the "Splendid Palace" cinema to be called one of the most sophisticated and beautiful cinemas in Europe.


In the summer season, we are announcing applications for guided tours in English with Jānis Ābele's short film "81 meters" and guided tour in Russian.
