Fyrisbiografen opened in 1911 and is one of Sweden's oldest cinemas. It differed from the "norm" from an early point by showing high-quality artistic European films.
Today Fyrisbiografen remains a unique venue that contributes to Uppsala's reputation as a cultural city. It shows the latest and foremost films from around the world – for all ages. The films often deal with life's big issues and provoke both discussion and involvement.
The cinema has showings every evening and at weekends. It also hosts regular film festivals, talks with directors and special showings.
