Uppsala Akademiförvaltning has started the construction of a completely new cinema in the city center of Uppsala. After many years of planning, a modern, cohesive new Filmstaden is now being constructed in the corner of Klostergatan / Dragarbrunnsgatan.

In addition to the new cinema, restaurants and other services are also planned in the neighborhood and the existing garage with about 300 parking lots will also be renovated.

The first part of the project, consist of demolishing the current building to enable the construction of a new building.


The estimated time for the opening of the cinema is spring / summer 2024.


Information to tenants

To enable the construction of the new cinema, the current building around Klostergatan 10 and some parts of the courtyard have to be demolished. This will be performed in a very professional and safe manner.

For this reason the courtyard will be closed from July 12 and fences will be set up around the construction site. Fences will also be set up around the courtyard, towards parts of Dragarbrunnsgatan, Klostergatan and S:t Olofsgatan. For your and others’ safety you are not allowed to enter areas which are blocked by fences.

They work weekdays from 7am to 7pm. Demolishing and construction work will be performed between 8am to 6pm and noise and disturbances will be minimized as much as possible.

We will keep you updated along the way.
