Pro Cinema (Romanian pronunciation: [ˌprot͡ʃineˈma]) is a Romanian movie channel that is owned by ProSiebenSat.1 Media SE and launched on April 19, 2004. It was the first Romanian TV channel dedicated exclusively to movies, and as such it attracted a significant audience from its very inception, mainly in the 18-49 urban demographic. Contrary to most indigenous channels, Pro Cinema aired a wide array of movies, ranging from Romanian and international classics to recent American blockbusters. The channel introduced popular contemporary series such as The Sopranos, Monk, Alarm für Cobra 11, Two and a Half Men or The Shield, but also aired older sitcoms such as Seinfeld (currently aired by Pro X) and Friends, which were formerly broadcast by Pro TV. PRO Cinema also aired shows such as Saturday Night Live and various documentaries featuring famous actors and directors.
