Escape from the 'Liberty' Cinema (Polish: Ucieczka z kina "Wolność") is a 1990 Polish drama film directed by Wojciech Marczewski. It was screened in the Un Certain Regard section at the 1991 Cannes Film Festival.
An unusual event interrupts the screening of a new Polish film at "Wolność" / "Liberty" cinema: actors rebel, refusing to play false, stupefying roles, and start drawing the audience into side conversations. Representatives of an official commission, who are present among the audience, try to control the rebellion. People flock around the cinema and the authorities wonder how to tackle the situation. A censor - once a poet, literary critic and journalist - arrives and, driven by love for Małgorzata, the film heroine, crosses the screen and starts talking to her. The actress thanks him for a good review of many years ago and expresses her disapproval of his current job. Disappointed, the censor returns to reality, but now a different man, he resolves to give up the censor's position, realizing that it is the cause of his enslavement.
