Bringing to life the almost lost concept of the Bioscope, this venue is a movie theater that strives to steer clear from mainstream cinema, focusing more on independent cinema. Located on the ground floor of the bustling Main Street Life building, The Bioscope opened its doors in 2010 and since then has been providing the locals with a space where they can discover something different, movies that deal with issues that matter, rather than the glamor of the mainstream cinema. From films made by not-so-known local filmmakers, to films made by filmmakers from around the globe, The Bioscope is the ideal stop for any cinema lover. See the website to know more.

The films are, however, normally recent releases and not historical ones. For movie schedules and other details, check the website.
