Tu było kino is not only a film dedicated to former cinemas in Bydgoszcz of which there used to be more than twenty, in the last Century.
The film by Krzysztof Nowicki is first and foremost a story about passing, and a journey to the world of human memories.
The author of the film brings two chairs taken from the former Pomorzanin cinema to all the locations where there used to be cinemas in Bydgoszcz, inviting passers-by to sit and talk to him.
The previous location of the Pomorzanin cinema at ul. Gdańska 10 is the leitmotif of the entire film by Krzysztof Nowicki.
The film was shot on several locations of former cinemas in Bydgoszcz at the spot of the former Słońce cinema in the district of Górzyskowo, at the former Mimoza cinema near the Grunwaldzkie roundabout, at the former Robotnik cinema in the district of Fordon (which later changed its name to Wisła), which was located in the building of a former synagogue, and finally at the former location of the Gryf cinema on ul. Śniadeckich, andr the Wolność cinema on ul. Gdańska.
