The cinema (Swedish: biograf) Rigoletto is one of the most central cinemas in the Swedish capital Stockholm. Unlike other cities, Stockholm has retained a myriad of small and large cinemas in and near the citycentre, Kungsgatan and Hötorget hereby represent the most dense area of cinemas. Biografen Rigoletto opened on 17th March 1939 as a 1,201-seat single screen.
It became the first cinema in Sweden to be equipped with CinemaScope, which was first presented in December 1953. In 1980, it became a 7-screen multiplex cinema with seven screens bringing the total seating capacity up to 1,6. The six additional screens had been created in adjacent premises on three levels. The smallest of these had 81 seats.
It is now a complex of four screens and competes with nearby Filmstaden Sergel for the most attractive big screening room. Heart of Rigoletto is the original auditorium cinema 1, with 1,077 seats in orchestra and balcony (pardon: VIP) level. The VIP level has a nice foyer area whereas the general entrance area is rather dark and hardly inviting. While the theatre does not have any particular architectural features, its leather seats are very comfortable and the viewing experience is a pleasure. The cinema clearly is a premiere cinema, showing the most important hits of the season and is well frequented. In 2014 the cinema was refurbished and the main original auditorium had its seating capacity reduced to 576. By 2018 this had been increased to 756 (569 in the stalls & 187 in the VIP Circle). Next to the cinema is the large Bistro Rigoletto.
