Palads Teatret

Palads is a gigantic cinema complex in the center of Copenhagen. Coming from Hovedbanegården (the Central Station), you can't help noticing the colors of this building. Palads is a palace of amusement and entertainment, containing 17 screens of varying sizes. Unless you go for intellectual films, you will find almost everything you want playing here. Palads aims to please a very wide audience, showing a lot of children's films as well. The lobby itself is an experience, with an exciting mix of crowds, colors and candy. Some of the screens are of a high standard, but there are a few towards the lower end, too.

Royal Danish Theater

Located on Kongens Nytorv, the Royal Danish Theater was built by architect Wilhelm Dallerup in 1874. The building is especially impressive at night when crowds flock to the theater in evening dress. Home of the Royal Theater Company, the Royal Ballet and the Opera, the theater has two stages: Gamle Scene (old stage) and Ny Scene (new stage). Gamle Scene has a magnificent auditorium. The ceiling is decorated with Constantin Hansen's Nine Muses. Sculptures of two of Denmark's most famous playwrights decorate the entrance: Ludvig Holberg (1684-1754) was sculpted by T. Stein in 1875 and Adam Oehlenschläger (1799-1850) made by H.W. Bissen in 1861. In 1929-31 the Ny Scene was built in a separate building, the controversial, art deco Strekassen. The ticket office is open from 1p to 8p, Monday to Saturday. Leftover tickets are sold at half price from 5p on the evening of the performance.

Bellevue Teatret

Bellevue Teatret was the finishing touch to a local architectural plan for the area of Bellevue, made by world-famous Danish architect Arne Jacobsen in the 1930s. The theater was finished in 1936 and stands for modern, white Functionalism. From the outside, the building is impressive, but inside a typical, intimate Jacobsen design universe opens up. The round shapes, the mosaics, and the way the balcony wraps around the theater just have to be experienced. The repertoire consists mainly of family entertainment and shows of the lighter kind. People flock in from the city to feel the spirit and to see the phenomenal view over the beautiful Øresund.
