Grand Teatret is large art house cinema close to Rådhuspladsen (the Town Hall Square) and Copenhagen's most popular shopping street, Strget. The cozy atmosphere of the surroundings has diffused into the café and the lobby of the cinema. It contains six theaters, which vary in size and comfort, depending on the popularity of the film being screened. On the repertoire are mostly arty or intellectual films, or smaller productions that the commercial cinemas have left unscreened.
Imperial is one of the last really big cinemas in Denmark, containing only one huge theater with room for 1102 people. This cinema is situated near Vesterport Station and Hovedbanegården (the Central Station). Imperial is well-known for its sound system and its size, which together create a cinematic experience a whole lot better than that of other cinemas. The repertoire consists mainly of mainstream action movies but sometimes also makes room for more poetic or romantic genres. They only screen very popular films, though. The best seats at Imperial are expensive, but it's worth it.
Cinemateket is in the heart of Copenhagen, between Kongens Nytorv and Nørreport Station, and is part of the Danish Film Institute. The architecturally interesting building contains two cinema theaters, a library, a videoteque, a bookshop and a café, all in a fashionable atmosphere. The repertoire varies with different themes each month; almost all genres are represented at some time throughout the year. Each film is screened twice or thrice a month, and the prices are relatively low per ticket. Some short flicks and children's films are free, but you normally have to order the tickets in advance. Cinemateket is the only cinema in Copenhagen with such a varied repertoire, and is an especially fun place to bring children on a rainy day.

The extensive spaces at the center include the three screen Cinematheque featuring an eclectic program of movies, a library offering a collection of books on cinema and television as well as a Film & Bookshop.
