Sopot is a place of entertainment, there is no shortage of theatres, during the summer it is highly recommended to visit the Atelier Theatre named after the famous Polish song writer Agnieszka Osiecka. Although there is neither English transcripts for the events nor an English presenter it is worth visiting to see Polish culture and listen to great songs presented by pop stars and by amateurs trying their luck. There is a new modern cinema just built which has replaced two old cinemas on Main Street . This is a complex with modern equipment located downtown on the Main Street just steps from the beach. The interesting thing is that all English dialogues are not dubbed but only polish subtitles are shown on the bottom, so you can fully enjoy any movie.
The entire complex occupies almost 3 000 square meters and shares its space with shops and restaurants. With its closed circle atmosphere it is one of a kind. The smallest auditorium has a capacity for 80 people. The biggest one was built to accompany 290 viewers. The entire complex is capable of hosting 1050 spectators. The layout is also unorthodox, following a similar design in Warsaw it has retro style. Inside you can see chandeliers and heavy stylish curtains.

Also the entire complex can serve as a conference center.
