Winter has arrived and there’s no better to spend it than under the covers watching a good movie. But instead of doing that at home, why not treat yourself to a warm and cozy stay in a hotel in Tel Aviv filled with cinematic delights? To help you answer that question, we’ve rounded up our top recommendations for movie buffs and anyone who’s looking for some winter vacation ideas.
Tel Aviv has long been a great city for movie buffs. Over the years, the wooden movie theater seating have been replaced with new, luxury ones and state of the art technologies have upgraded the experience. Here are all the places where you can enjoy a good movie during your winter vacation in Tel Aviv, plus a recommendation for completing your perfect evening with a good meal or a drink.
Rav Hen Dizengoff coupled with La Shuk restaurant
Rav Hen movie theater in Dizengoff Square is a surprisingly large building housing a few spacious movie theaters with huge screens and comfy seats. Rav Hen features the latest blockbusters, in both Hebrew and English, as well as some international films.
Because popcorn is not dinner: on the other side of the square you will find the La Shuk restaurant that for the past five years has been a popular, fun and high quality spot for a great culinary experience. We also highly recommend the colorful Mediterranean cocktails.
Lev Cinema coupled with Voodoo bar
Lev Cinema is located in the Dizengoff Center shopping mall, on the 3rd floor of this intricate building that often causes confusion and difficulty in finding your way around. But don’t worry, you can enter the movie theater from the main street so you won’t get lost looking for it. Lev Cinema is well known for its high quality movie selection from all around the world, as well as global blockbusters. This is the perfect place to enjoy that movie everyone is talking about or a brilliant foreign film no one’s heard of.
Because popcorn can make you thirsty: On the other side of the street you will find one of the neighborhood’s favorite bars regularly frequented by locals – the Voodoo Bar. Although it was designed in an African style, this bar offers a large selection of very western drinks: wines, beers and cocktails. It also features a dance floor that come to life some time during the night.
Tel Aviv Cinematheque coupled with Gazzetta bar and restaurant
Tel Aviv Cinematheque hosts international movie festivals and often screens Israeli movies, especially documentaries. Be warned: there’s no popcorn in sight in the Cinematheque and you won’t even be allowed to bring any food items with you into the movie theater.
Because you’ll probably be hungry after: InMarmurek Street, that connects between Habima Square and the Cinematheque complex, you will find the small and intimate Gazzetta Italian style bar and restaurant. We highly recommend you warm up with the soft and sweet polenta paired with a delightful glass of wine.
A movie at the museum coupled with Pastel restaurant
This might surprise you, but another popular movie theater is hiding in the Tel Aviv Museum of Art of all places! The museum meticulously selects high quality, rare films you cannot find anywhere else and offers an intimate and unique viewing experience. Our recommendation is to start your visit viewing one of the changing exhibitions and when you get tired, enjoy a great movie.
Because you’ll probably be hungry after: You won’t find any popcorn here either but a tasty meal and some good wine are waiting for you just around the corner in Pastel restaurant, which is adjacent to the museum.
A private cinematic experience in your hotel by the sea
Sea Executive Suites hotel is located by the sea – the perfect place to spend a winter vacation while enjoying a spacious and beautiful suite. You can choose to watch your favorite movies in the privacy of your hotel room and enjoy the huge TV screens in either the living room or bedroom, and then get a great night’s sleep in our soft queen sized bed. In the morning, you will be able to enjoy a colorful Israeli breakfast offering delicious dishes suitable for everyone, including vegans and vegetarians. In addition, you can spend some time in the intimate and warm wooden sauna, which is perfect for winter, take a refreshing stroll by the wintry sea, sip a warm cup of tea or coffee under the blue-gray skies on our rooftop, or read a good book and enjoy a snack in the hotel’s intimate lobby.
