Fodor's Expert Review Iluzjon Filmoteki Narodowej
Don't count on seeing many Polish films while visiting Warsaw; only one cinema specializes in Polish features: Iluzjon Filmoteki Narodowej. You will also find art movies and even festivals of silent movies in its repertory. Recently renovated, the 1950s cinema is now a listed building, a great example of postwar modernism. Standing in a green square in the Old Mokotów district, its characteristic purplish blue neon sign beckoning from the distance, "Iluzjon" is one of Warsaw's magical places. There is a pleasant cafe inside, called "Iluzja."
