At Sõprus you’ll find movie classics from Michelangelo Antonioni, John Cassavetes, Federico Fellini, Jean-Luc Godard etc. It is also a place to catch quirky contemporary films or enjoy the programme of local film festivals.
The cinema hall also operates as a stage for music concerts, theatre acts, comedy nights and other forms of art.
