About
"One of the oldest cinemas in Europe (dating back to 1907), Parkteatret is now a 500-capacity music venue with an excellent reputation for Norwegian and international acts. The former projection room is now a tiny recording studio but much of the original decor remains. On Sundays it downsizes to a small stage and showcases local talent." (The Guardian, UK) Parkteatret Scene is an old cinema from 1907 now functioning mainly as a concert venue with a capacity of 500. Our main focus is pop/rock, but the venue is also great for indie, bluegrass, country, rockabilly, jazz and blues. We often have either a concert or disco for children on Sundays. Apart from concerts, theres often documentary films or other kinds of movie nights on Wednesdays, often with debates or discussions on the topics raised. The old foyer of the cinema now hosts Parkteatret Bar, which is popular for its wide selection of quality drinks, good coffee and good music. The bar has a nice outdoor seating area, perfect for sunny days with a nice cold drink. Parkteatret Bar also serves as a nice venue for smaller concerts, releases etc. Parkteatret is situated in Grünerlokka, an area that has become revigorated since the 1990's and is now one of the most vibrant parts of the city. The venue is in its original shape, although the stage has undergone a complete rebuild so that it meets the standard of sound reflection in European concert venues.

A great place for concert
Sep. 2018 • Solo
One of the best concert stages in Oslo. Small and cozy. A lovely staff, except from one night. They were delayed to open the doors. I stood under the roof, because it rained a lot. One guard told me to stand behind the fence, in the rain. It was no queue at all. I told them that they could’nt behave like that when they were delayed, not me.

Kortfilmvisning norsk og engelsk anmeldelse.
May 2018 • Friends
Vi besøkte Parkteateret for første gang i forbindelse med Bjarne vil ikke på film. Det ble tilsammen vist fire kortfilmer som virkelig falt i smak. Parkteateret er en intim liten filmsal som langt overgikk våre forventninger. Morro rett og slett.

We visited the Park Theater for the first time in connection with Bjarne not going to film. In total, four short films were made that really fell into taste. The park theater is an intimate little cinema that far exceeded our expectations. Morro simply.

A must on a sunny day!
Apr. 2017
Have your refreshments inside or most preferably outside in the sun in the coolest part of town. A classic cafe and bar and a soulful concert venue. A must try if you enjoy alcoholic or nonalcoholic beverages, music and concerts, or life in general.

The sun came out.
Apr. 2017 • Couples
I love places that are not perfectly decorated a little rough around the edges.
Sat outside just as the sun came out with a cider and a very good VERY dark stout, great way to watch the world go by.

Overated and overpopulated
Jul. 2016 • Couples
A tiny bar and not the most comfortable seats. It's always packed so it must be popular. Best to get there in the summer. Sit outside and chill with a good drink. But the bar is nothing special.

If you want to get a feel of the real Oslo, this is the place! Best bar in Oslo by far.
Jan. 2017 • Friends
If you're looking to discover the real Oslo then this is the place. Not only does it regularly host the best gigs in town in its concert hall, it also has an awesome bar with large selection of local and international beers. This is where the trendy and most approachable locals hang out so you know it's good. It's in the heart of Grunelokka, the East central side of Oslo in the middle of all the best bars and restaraunts Oslo has to offer. We met a lot of great people there and it became our go-to place over the weekend. If you visit with your friends, as a couple or even on your own you'd be missing out if you didn't visit Parkteatret and you'd probably find yourself going more than once! It's friendly staff and atmosphere are second to none. Have fun! :D

We went there for a concert. We had some time and decided to try the bar. A very cosy bar, reminded me about the sixties. Very good service and large selection of drinks. Afterwards we went for the contert in and old cinema. It was perfect for the concert with a small bar with coffee, snacks, beer and wine.
