Cult cinema in Mitte

Five minutes’ walking distance from Alexanderplatz. Huge hand-painted film posters hang on the sandstone façade of the postmodern building from the 60’s. Though its architecture is striking from the outside, the building’s most impressive features are found inside. With its magnificent chandeliers, retro eastern European style, red armchairs and huge glass front, the cinema’s foyer is a highlight in itself. Be it premieres or gay parties, this cinema hosts all sorts of events where glamorous VIPs mix with students, film lovers and party people.

With its glittering curtain and elegant wood panelling, the cinema hall is the building’s centerpiece. This room makes a night at the movies an all round aesthetic delight. (Be it before or after the film, it is worth your while to hang out in the bar area and look out the windowed wall. Peering over the Karl-Marx-Allee and Café Moskau, you’ll suddenly feel like you’ve been transported to a different time.)
