There is always one day a week with a special offer for cheaper tickets (16 PLN). Regular weekend tickets cost around 25 PLN.
Smaller cinemas and art houses do not have an as wide timetable as multiplex cinemas, but they offer a unique atmosphere. They also often organise film festivals which are a great way to get to know low-budget cinema or forgotten classics. Ticket prices are more favourable to your pocket, with special screenings for even 5 PLN. The most famous art houses are Kino pod Baranami (a cinema owned by Piwnica pod Baranami), Kijow Centrum, located in the beautiful modernist building and Krakow Cinema Centre ARS, the oldest cinema in Krakow.
