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.
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.

Rådhuspladsen è nel cuore di Copenhagen. Su questa piazza trovate il municipio e la casa di Politiken, dove le scritte al neon riportano le notizie dal mondo per i passanti.

Rådhuspladsen è un rinomato luogo d'incontro, ed offre magnifiche viste dei fuochi d'artificio del Tivoli.

Dagmar originally contained theater stages but is now a large cinema complex, right by Rådhuspladsen (the Town Hall Square). After having been refurbished, the cinema now consists of five theaters; next to the entrance a café helps to create a cozy atmosphere. The repertoire of the cinema aims mainly at a mature audience, with quality movies but no 'small' films. In the area there are several mainstream cinemas, amongst them Imperial and Palads.
