Kino Mladosť, nearly a centenarian

THE OLDEST cinema in Slovakia has reached the age of 90. On October 5, 1913, it moved from the Hotel Green Tree (today's Carlton) to its current location at 17 Hviezdoslav Square.
"It was the first cinema in Slovakia, then Upper Hungary, that used two projectors. This means that it could screen films without the necessary breaks for inserting a new film reel into a projector," said Ernest Húska from Bioscop.

"The tradition of modernization [at the cinema] continues - today's cinema has air conditioning, a Dolby Stereo sound system, comfortable seating with built-in translation facilities, and the most modern acoustic facing," he added.

Mladosť Cinema is the only theatre in the country that enjoys the statute of European Cinema assured by the European Council and its Eurimages/Europa Cinemas fund. It regularly organizes international film festivals. One such festival, the Days of Latin Film, just ended on October 10.
