I can add that the original theatre was modelled on the royal theatre of Copenhagen (on a much smaller scale) and by the same architects. The building was originally a hotel, named after Princess Dagmar (later czarina Maria Feodorovna of Russia). Legendary director Carl Th. Dreyer managed the cinema from 1952 through the late sixties.

The Dagmar is not a great beauty anymore, but it was still my favorite theatre when I lived in Copenhagen, due to its intimate café atmosphere and a pleasant blend of indie and the best of studio films.
