Vienna is lucky to have a number of independent cinemas, whose programme goes well beyond the latest Hollywood blockbusters. Top Kino is one of the nicest examples of that type. With its central location close to Museumsquartier and the increasingly hip Gumpendorfer Straße it is not only a place to watch good movies, but also a café, bar and restaurant where people meet at all times of the day. In summer they open a cosy outdoor area, which is a bit off the surrounding busy streets and therefore presents a perfect occasion to sit down to relax, have a coffee and read through some newspapers (if you happen to be there in the morning try the „director’s breakfast“: an espresso and a cigarette). Once in a while Top Kino hosts events, such as the Poolinale music film festival or weekend parties.
