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 estimated time for the opening of the cinema is fall 2024.

Important 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 2021 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 8pm. 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.

Facade renovation starting in June 2023

At the same time as the cinema is being built, we will have our facade renovated. This will include extensive work, which will entail, among other things, that some of you have to change rooms. There will also be noise involved. We will send out more information to tenants that are affected by the facade renovation closer to the project start. This work will start in June 2023 and preliminary end will be late summer 2024.

Frequently asked questions about the project:

I have noticed cracks on the walls in my room. What shall I do and can it be dangerous?

We have received information and photos of cracks from some of you. This type of information is immediately forwarded to the site’s project organisation. A design engineer hired by the site takes part in the assessment and monitoring of cracks that appear and all reported cracks have been deemed safe. Necessary repairs of cracks will be made, but it is not planned exactly when yet. Please report new cracks to info@housingoffice.se.


We sincerely thank you for your cooperation and understanding!
