ETELE Cinema in Budapest Wows with a Child-Friendly Movie Theater & Reclining Seats
The next-generation Etele Plaza hosts a unique cinema experience with state-of-the-art sound technology, reclining seats, a room particularly designed for children, and premium services for movie enthusiasts.

ETELE Cinema has elevated the movie-going experience to a new level: Dolby Atmos and 7.1 sound systems, 4K laser projection technology, and pixel-controlled lighting for perfect entertainment.

ETELE Cinema has reimagined movie watching at its core, with every corner focused on entertaining guests, ensuring comfort, and maximising the cinematic experience. Visitors are greeted by a futuristic and elegantly modern visual world. Each of the 14 theaters has a unique design and colour combination, and outstanding mood lighting ensures a comprehensive experience for visitors.

Movie-goers have multiple options regarding seating and services. Even the standard seats feature custom-designed premium quality, and Scandinavian design chairs with extra-wide seating for carefree entertainment. In addition to the Italian fabric upholstery framed in Spanish faux leather and Hungary’s only reclining seats, individually adjustable reclining sofa chairs without separating armrests evoke a cosy, home-like atmosphere.

The PREMIUM rooms further elevate the cinema experience, where seats come with extra-wide armrests, wooden-covered tables, built-in cup holders, and wireless QI-certified charging, providing exceptional comfort for movie-watching. As part of the PREMIUM service, guests are treated to a buffet 30 minutes before screenings and unlimited snack and soft drink consumption throughout.

A room particularly designed for children

ETELE Cinema has also considered the youngest visitors. The KIDS room is designed for the perfect family movie experience. The adventure begins at the entrance, where animations projected on a mist curtain welcome and invite families inside.

The design ensures that the cinema experience is not frightening for children.The movies shown are quieter than average, and the room does not completely darken. Soft, colourful, and varied seating, and projected windows that open up the space help immerse viewers in the movie’s world.

Lower chairs and movable cushioned stools make the experience even more comfortable and playful for the little ones.

The experience starts upon arrival

Hungary’s first smart plaza offers a personalised shopping experience thanks to its own mobile application and cloud-based services. The building is equipped with several benches with USB ports, and a Hungarian-speaking Pepper robot at the information desk guides visitors.

There are 1,300 parking spaces, 130 of which are reserved for electric cars. Inside, a globally unique system developed at Óbuda University, Ariadné, assists visually impaired and blind visitors with navigation.

The spacious restaurant level, with its green roof and direct terrace access, represents the latest shopping centre design. Alongside shops, a grocery store, restaurants, cafes, a gym, a children’s playhouse, and a wide range of services await shoppers.

State-of-the-art technologies serve the visitors’ safety and health protection.

Discounts throughout the year

ETELE Cinema hosts several original language and subtitled screenings on Mondays. Tickets for Monday’s Originals screenings can be purchased online for as low as 1,790 HUF.

From Monday to Thursday, late-night movie-goers are offered discounts. During the Late Night Happy Hour, tickets for screenings starting at 9 PM or later are also available at a discounted price of 1,790 HUF with online purchase.

Using the Etele Plaza mobile app offers additional benefits for movie-goers. Points collected after purchase can be used to buy movie tickets, and if the car’s license plate is already registered, parking can be validated with just a QR code scan for a three-hour discount. Parking can also be paid for with a single button press.

The perfect venue

A key objective in the design and construction of ETELE Cinema was to make it a cinema and a versatile event venue. Its interior, layout, and technical capabilities make it ideal for virtually any indoor event, such as lectures, conferences, galas, corporate parties, notable birthdays, e-sport championships, or even smaller concerts.

The two levels of the cinema can be separated entirely, but if required, the two large rooms can be connected to the Premium and accessed from above.

The cinema can be accessed directly from Level 5 of the mall’s car park so that those arriving by car can enter the cinema area almost immediately.

Detailed technical specifications of the screens are available on the ETELE Cinema website.
