"Cinema in Pankow - from the beginnings to the present day" is the title of the new exhibition organised by the Friends of the Pankow Chronicle in the Brosehaus. Knowing that the film history of Weißensee and Prenzlauer Berg has already been publicised many times, the association's local historians have set out to reappraise and present this history of Old Pankow.


They talk about cinema stories, film locations, Pankow film stars and starlets. But above all about the Skladanowskys - the father and his three sons who "taught the pictures to walk". It also shows how the history of cinema in the district has developed since its beginnings, how the Nazi era, post-war developments, the building of the Berlin Wall, history after 1990 and the new media have influenced Pankow's cinema-going. Many unknown facts can be learnt, especially about film locations in Pankow and Niederschönhausen.

The fact that the "Blue Star" still shines in Pankow is almost a miracle. One of the aims of this exhibition is to ensure that it stays that way and that the enthusiasm for a good film on a big screen does not die. The exhibition organisers used the documents on cinema history collected by Rainer Winkelmann over decades as a basis.
