“Located at the best spot of the city The Jerusalem Cinemateque is by far one of the best places to hung on. Check up what's on in one of the 4 cinema halls or have food or drinks in the restaurant with the best view in the world of the Old City walls. Cheers. To get there take a bus (lines 71,72,73,74) from Hebron Road just next by (take a right when you go out the building and then first left. the bus stop in opposit on the main road). The ride takes about 9 minutes and 7 stops. Get off at Hachan/David Remez (opposit The First Station) and then go back to Hebron Road and take a left. The cinemateque will be 150 m down the rosd on the left. ”

“Smadar Cinema is one of the oldests in Jerusalem. Right in the heart of the beautiful neighbourhood of Baka ( allow yourself to get lost in the coolness of the streets). They screen quality films and the restaurant serves realy good food all day. This place is a real shelter from the city. To get there take bus 34 right next to me ( take a right when you go out of the building and then right again the bus stop is 2 minutes down the road) 11 stops will get you to Emek Rephaim (Hatzfira stop) and then ask anyone it's really near”

The closest access point to the rail trail from our house is a 20 minute walk.
