The film selection is primarily oriented towards mainstream American production, complemented by a strong focus on a children's programme and cartoons. Furthermore, the young ones are also treated with weekly events held each Saturday featuring workshops and cartoon screenings.
Various events often accompany movie premieres and – one way or another – correspond to a given film's theme. There are also occasional special features and programmes, as for example, weeks dedicated to films from specific countries (e.g., South Korea and Japan, both weeks supported by the Embassy of the Republic of Slovenia Tokyo). Kino Bežigrad also hosted a mini-festival of media arts, organised by the Secondary School of Multimedia and Graphic Technology Ljubljana and the film school Artes Liberales. It showcased the works created by their pupils in the preceding five years.
Aside from films, Kino Bežigrad also runs a programme of theatre plays (mostly staging comedies), stand-up shows (hosting mostly local performers like Damir Avdić) and puppet plays.
