Open air events + festivals

Berlin is taking to the streets. Summer and winter, people are drawn outdoors to celebrate and eat, discuss and make music. Depending on the weather and season, Berliners and visitors take to cosy yurts, the city’s many squares and streets, or beach bars along the River Spree. Some festivals take place across the entire city, while others are organised by individual neighbourhoods.

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.
