The interior is magnificent. Reminds me more of National Opera and ballet house than cinema. Movies here are sometimes not the main blockbusters but more of unrevealed gems. but I have seen also terrible movies as well there. nevertheless I still love this place

I picked a movie just to visit this movie theatre, and was very impressed by both the premises and the quality of the projection and sound system. The atmosphere is great, so better than the anonymous modern cinemas we have to swallow nowadays. The titles...More

It is a very beautiful cinema theater, with amazing architecture, good quality cinema hall and a beautiful restaurant in the basement. I was there for TourFilm Riga Festival and I really enjoyed my time there.

Splendid Palace is one of Riga,s most beautiful buildings, only pity that view from the street is blocked by Soviet time construction. But inside is perfect and its a pleasure to watch good quality films without popcorn and cola.

Went for an arts movie festival. Lovely. There seems to be a lot going on here, and the neighbourhood is filled with nice places to eat.. If you are picky about seating try to book in advance.

I think Splendid Palace is one of most gorgeous historical cinema, which is still operates as cinema! There are great interiors, which has been recently renovated and also old chairs replaced with comfy seats.
