-The new Helios cinema in Warsaw is a beautiful, innovative object that combines two seemingly distant worlds: modern multiplexes full of technology and climatic old cinemas. Our viewers will get a chance to back in time – to the years of splendor of Warsaw cinema industry, as well as in space – straight to the bustling New York City. We would like them to be enthralled by the cinema from the very beginning of its operations and to fall in in love with Helios just in time for Valentine’s Day – comments Tomasz Jagiello, the president of the Helios cinema network.
