Food is not allowed in Kunstnernes Hus Kino.

By default, the tenant has access to the cinema room 30 minutes before the start of the event and 30 minutes after. If the tenant wants more time than this, this can be agreed in advance. If the pre-agreed time frame is exceeded, this expense accrues to the tenant.
