  • 25 songs, 1 agent

    20 February 2020

    The James Bond films have a special connection with music ever since the first one in 1962. Right before the new episode in November and it's song, we now remember some of the tunes to which Agent 007 has rhymed his dry jokes and fast pistols over the years.

    You heard the name of one of the most famous Korean directors, if not before, certainly on the morning of February 10, when we woke up with new Oscars. He received 4 awards for Parasite - Best Picture, Directing, International Title and Screenplay (written by him and Han Jin-won).
  • Things we didn't know about... Greta Gerwig

    6 February 2020

    "Lights. Camera. Power" - Time's cover from March 2018 says it all. Director Greta Gerwig has come into the attention of Oscars right with the first film written and directed by her; and now this happens again with her second one, Little Women. We have a look at her to see what makes her tick.
  • Four of the big ones

    23 January 2020

    As we await the 2020 Oscars, we hear something even more exciting from behind the curtains - four of the most beautiful minds in cinema are making new films this year, which (even before they come out) smell of awards. But let's see.

    His sister gives him a nickname for Bear when he is only a week old and his name is Edward, so she magically charts his way forward.
  • 10 Years in Front of The Screen

    19 December 2019

    Outside of the comic book heroes universe, Star Wars, Game of Thrones or the cosmic number of reworked classics, a lot has happened in the last ten years. Here are some directors, films and phenomena that have rotated into our orbit, and we decided to leave them here to enlighten us when we hit the counter.
  • What we didn't know about... Genndy Tartakovsky

    17 October 2019

    text Sevda Semer

    You may not know his name and you will hardly recognize him on the street, but you probably remember who his Samurai Jack or Dexter are. Born in Russia as Gennady, Tartakovsky is an animator and filmmaker who also worked on The Powerpuff Girls, Star Wars, and the Transylvania Hotel. He's got Emmy and Annie awards, but if it already sounds pretty pop to you, his work's actually far more punk - Genndy sets his own rules and likes to experiment with his films.

    Autumn comes with a full basket of new series, from which we bring out 5 flavors ranging from horror and fiction to comedy and comics. If it's not enough, we also tell you about a dangerous wild animation on the front page.
  • On a literary case

    22 August 2019

    Both exciting and scary is the experience of watching a movie based on a book (or comic book) because you can't stop looking for discrepancies with the source material. Well, whoever loves this type of adrenaline, go set an alarm for the next three movies approaching.
  • Right in the Nine: Quentin Tarantino

    8 August 2019

    On August 16, our screens will finally be broken by the caption "Quentin Tarantino's 9th movie." You know it is Once Upon a Time... in Hollywood, and that the faces of the poster go into a nostalgic-aggressive story about the end of the golden era of cinema.
  • What we didn't know about... John Cleese

    4 July 2019

    text Kristina Yordanova photo Bob King

    John Cleese himself, as a part of the comedy group Monty Python, is rarely serious. He is the first man, who said the word "sh*t" on British television and also the man who says goodbye to one of his best friends on a funeral with the word "f*ck". His attitude stays the same with his stand-up Last Time to See Me Before I Die, which comes here in September at the National Palace of Culture.
  • A trailer from Cannes

    30 May 2019

    This is how, right now, we're looking at the new cinema that will come on a screen near you later this year. For some you've heard - Tarantino will bring us back to 1969 with Once Upon a Time in Hollywood, Almodovar shows Pain & Glory with Banderas as an old director, and Malick brings us to A Hidden Life. In the shadows of those big ones though, let's not forget the other ones that shine just as bright.

  • Metropolitan Opera in Sofia

    21 February 2019

    There are at least 4 months until the end of the season at the Metropolitan Opera, but there are only 3 shows live at Cinema City Sofia.

  • What we didn't know about... Yorgos Lanthimos

    31 January 2019

    Some say that this Greek director is the new Bergman - because of his generous slow footage; that he is the new Lars von Trier - because of the violence in front of his lens; or that it is the new Michael Haneke - because of the silent shock you live with when you exit the cinema. In fact, Lanthimos is great because he's mostly like himself. Because of this are his recent ten Oscar nominations, including best director. His previous films - The Lobster, The Killing of a Secret Deer, Dog Tooth - pull us  in the subconscious just as strongly as his last one, The Favourite. Right before its' premiere in Sofia, we lay out for you a couple of things about Yorgos.
