Uplink Shibuya アップリンク渋谷

A central cinema screening independent movies and serving up excellent coffee

If you're a fan of underground and independent cinema, be sure to add Uplink to your Tokyo itinerary. Located in a Shibuya backstreet just a few minutes walk from Yoyogi Park and NHK Studio Park, this cinema regularly screens indie productions, documentaries, short films and experimental video projects.

You can grab a coffee or lunch at the cinema's on-site café and browse the free exhibitions held in the cinema's first floor gallery space before or after your movie.

For a deeper dive into the local creative scene, check out the second floor bookstore, which is home to an eclectic collection of publications. The cinema also frequently offers rainy day discounts, making it an excellent backup plan when the weather is not cooperating.
