un cinéma intelligent

Can anyone translate this for me into English please? Surely it's not intelligent cinema?
  • Give us more context - a whole sentence at least. It could refer to high-level computer technology or intellectual artistic content, we've no way of telling out of context.
    OK: Si ces cinémas multisalles laissent de moins en moins de place à un cinéma intelligent ou les films d'auteur font de très courtes carrières en salles...
    Archijacq's thought-provoking sounds good to me. Nothing wrong, either, with "intelligent films", surely?

    Otherwise, you're into interpretation - serious, highbrow, art-house ... which may be too specific for the OP's context.
