The Cinematheque’s Corona precautions

The Cinematheque is open again! We follow the current recommendations and guidelines from the Danish health authorities, and we regularly update the site here in line with developments.



  • Re-opening: The Cinematheque is open again and we follow the recommendations and guidelines from the Danish health authorities.
  • No need for COVID-19 passport: As of August 1st you no longer need to present af COVID-19 passport at The Cinematheque. You simply show your ticket entering the cinema.  
  • Face mask: From June 14th it is no longer required to wear a face mask at Cinemateket (but it is allowed of course). 
  • Half capacity: We have regulated the maximum amount of guests allowed in the theatre and therefore, an empty seat between you and the other guests will be necessary. You can, however, purchase tickets as a group and sit together with your boyfriend or girlfriend, children of other near acquaintances. The theatre will approximately be half full in case of sold out tickets and in line with the current recommendations and guidelines.
  • Receptions and more: At the moment, unfortunately, we are not hosting any receptions or other types of events with substantial crowd circulation in the Asta Bar or in the foyer. In case of servings, these will be enjoyed while sitting down in the theatre or in SULT (see descriptions of the individual events). Additionally, some talks take place in Asta Bar - these will require tickets and are subject to change according to the respective recommendations and guidelines. 
  • Hygiene: We are cleaning the theatre and door knobs between all screenings. Furthermore, we are installing hand sanitizer dispensers and informing about recommended behavior. 


  • Purchase online: In order to minimize eventual crowds and queues at our ticket office, we are encouraging that you purchase tickets online at home. The tickets can be displayed directly from your telephone, when you are entering the theatre and therefore, it is not necessary to print out your tickets. 
  • Show consideration: We encourage you to follow the recommendations and guidelines from the Danish health authorities: wash or sanitize your hands, cough and sneeze in your sleeves and keep a distance to others in our foyer, café and etc. Stay home if you have any symptoms. 
  • Stay updated: Our practices and recommendations to you as an audience will be updated regularly on the website. If you have any questions, feel free to contact the staff. 



  • Tickets purchased online were refunded automatically on Tuesday, December 8th 2020. 
  • Tickets purchased at the ticket office can be refunded at our ticket office after we have reopened (and 30 days ahead). 
  • Inquiries regarding tickets can be addressed to our service phone in opening hours at +45 3374 3412 - you can also write an email to

We update regularly about the situation on this page. See you at the Cinematheque!
