The A1081 uses DVI as connection http://www.everymac.com/monitors/apple/studio_cinema/specs/apple_cinema_display_ 20_2.html
The included HDMI to DVI adapter that came with the Mini should be all you need.

Hi, I'm always waiting an answer about this question ! I have two Apple cinéma displays 20' model No. A1081 and I'll buy a new Mac Mini only with the assurance they work together.
No answer from Applecare = No buy.
Fortuny from Hamburg: Thanks but nobody working in an Apple(care)center told me yet such a thing. We need a proof a photo of the connectors

Just other users here, no replies from Apple itself.
Besides the included adapter working, there's a MDP to DVI adapter you can buy...
