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 theatre will show Lithuanian short feature films, documentaries and cartoons selected by the short film agency Lithuanian Shorts and arranged into three programmes.

“We are very excited the airport has let the Lithuanian cinema and the works of young filmmakers in. This is one of the finest examples in Lithuania and elsewhere of how business and cultural institutions can cooperate by focusing on feelings and experiences of people rather than profit,” said Liana Ruokytė-Jonsson, one of the initiators of Film Box LT, the Head of Film Promotion, Information and Heritage Department of the Lithuanian Film Centre.

The film repertoire will be regularly changed to show as many works of Lithuania’s filmmakers as possible. All films are shown in Lithuanian with English subtitles. The future plans of Film Box LT include introducing screening long features.

Film Box LT movie theatre 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.
