The first airport cinema hall in the Eastern and Northern Europe was inaugurated at Vilnius Airport in June 2015. Now passengers waiting for their flights can pass the time at the airport watching Lithuanian creators' films in the FilmBox LT hall free of charge.
The idea of an unconventional passenger lounge at Vilnius Airport was implemented in cooperation with the Lithuanian Film Centre. Until the end of the year, the cinema will show Lithuanian short feature films, documentaries and cartoons selected by the short film agency Lithuanian Shorts and arranged into three programs.
The film repertoire will be regularly changed to show as many works of our country’s cinema makers as possible. All films are shown in Lithuanian with English subtitles. The future plans of FilmBox LT include introducing full-length movies to Vilnius Airport passengers.
“Vilnius Airport is not just an infrastructure, it is also the space where passengers spend a lot of time. We care about our passengers and their good mood, therefore we have established the cinema, where passengers will have an opportunity to relax before the flight as well as to become familiar with the Lithuanian cinema”, said Gediminas Almantas, CEO at SE Lithuanian Airports.
FilmBox LT cinema hall is located in the redeveloped departure area of Vilnius Airport next to gate A2. Its opening hours are adapted to the flight schedule - films are shown from the first to the last flight of the day, from 4 am till 11 pm daily. The hall can accommodate up to 50 passengers.
