New entertainment for departing passengers at Vilnius Airport

Baltic Travel Group

The first airport cinema hall in the Eastern and Northern Europe was inaugurated at Vilnius Airport. Now passengers waiting for their flights can enjoy their time at the airport even more and watch Lithuanian creators’ films in FilmBox LT hall free of charge.

The idea of unconventional passenger lounge at Vilnius Airport was implemented in cooperation with the Lithuanian Film Centre. Until the end of the year, the cinema will show Lithuanian short feature films, documentaries and cartoons selected by the short film agency Lithuanian Shorts and arranged into three programs.

“Vilnius Airport is not just an infrastructure, it is also the space where passengers spend a lot of time. We care about our passengers and their good mood, therefore we have established the cinema, where passengers will have an opportunity to relax before the flight as well as to become familiar with the Lithuanian cinema”, said Gediminas Almantas, CEO at SE Lithuanian Airports.

The film repertoire will be regularly changed to show as many works of our country’s cinema makers as possible. All films are shown in Lithuanian with English subtitles. The future plans of FilmBox LT include introducing full-length movies to Vilnius Airport passengers.

FilmBox LT cinema hall is located in the renewed departure area of Vilnius Airport next to the gate A2. Its working hours are adapted to the flight schedule – films are shown from the first to the last flight of the day, from 4 am till 11 pm daily. The hall can accommodate up to 50 passengers.
