Up-and-coming musicians will perform everything from low-key melodies to heavy rock and the bar will be open.
On five Thursdays this summer, a pub quiz will take place at the cinema, two of which will be in English. The event will be launched with a horror-themed quiz in Icelandic tonight at 8 pm.
The first English-language quiz, on June 20 at 8 pm, will be Star Wars-themed and the second about Blaxploitation films. There can only be two participants on each team. For further information, visit the cinema’s website.
