Film screenings at this urban location date back to 1896 when the very first film was shown in the hall of the then Malič Hotel. Later on, the hotel was demolished and the Ideal Cinema was built in its place. After World War Two, the Ideal Cinema was renamed to Kino Moskva (Moscow Cinema) and soon after to Kino Komuna, which was one of the most popular cinemas in the city until 2008 when Kolosej Cinemas closed it down for 3 years.
While the reopening of the Kino Komuna filled a gap in the options for film buffs in the city centre left after the closing of Kinoclub Vič, the Komuna's programming hasn't followed in the "arthouse footsteps" of the latter.
