Lev Cinemas

Lev Cinemas were established in 1982, providing a home in Tel Aviv for renowned films from all over the globe. The company founders, producer Izzo Shani and wife, Nurit Shani, say: “From the very start, we believed that the Israeli audience is an engaged, demanding, audience, that loves and expects a variety of foreign films, not just Hollywood cinema. We consider it our commitment to provide such films with a home address in Israel, and such audience – with a venue to serve its taste.“ Today, nearly four decades later, the national cinema network as well  as distribution house, both is ran by Guy Shani, son of Nurit and Izzo, and is continuously committed to bringing original, quality films, made by the best filmmakers in Israel And the world, offering a personal and artistic statement.

In recent years, Lev cinemas, in its capacity as a distributor, distributed a wide variety of films from around the world – funny, exciting and extraordinary. Films that stay with you for life, and others that allow a wonderful two-hour escape.
