The METRO Kinokulturhaus - Festival Cinema
Johannesgasse 4, 1010 Vienna

The METRO cinema is our main festival cinema once again. In the Historical Theatre (Historischer Saal), we show our many programs including the International Competitions, the Austrian Panorama and events featuring the Artist Talk, Q&As and panel discussions. The beautiful wooden panels and red interior of the Historical Theatre built in 1893, present a compelling contrast to the contemporary stories of the festival’s films. The Eric Pleskow Theatre (Pleskow Saal) presents another opportunity to see the festival programs in a more intimate setting. 

The cinema is located in the city center and can be reached by public transportation via the U3 (station Stephansplatz), the U1, U4 (station Karlsplatz), or the U4 (station Stadtpark).
