Verdensteatret Kino boasts for being the oldest cinema in Norway. Dating back to 1916, it was built specially for silent movies, yet nowadays it functions as a cinematheque as well, featuring an outstanding selection of films. It can seat only 216 cinephiles and is one of the seven digital cinematheques of Norway, each Thursday presenting one and the same movie. The walls of Verdensteatret Kino adorn paintings on Norwegian folk themes. Created by the local painter Sverre Mack back in 1921, they add authentic air to this place, which provides perfect setting for live broadcasts of Metropolitan Opera performances, screened there too. Verdensteatret Kino houses annual Tromsø International Film Festival, featuring special Silent Film Days (this year September 6 - 9).
