Die Kurbel

This tradition-rich inner city cinema offers three cinema halls. It was reopened in October 2010 and is now operated by a coope­ra­tive. The goal is to permanently maintain this 1957-opened cinema, which was then already cutting-edge and trend-setting, and to reconnect to the traditions and the vision of its founder Hubertus Wald.

Children's cinema at the Kinemathek

The aim of the Kinemathek children's cinema is to offer an alter­na­tive addition to the rich offering of enter­tain­ment in the media, to sharpen the percep­tiven­ess of "tomor­row's viewers", and to provide a kind of "visual education" offering practical value in everyday life. The programme consists of several unique film series and topics, including current (child­ren's) films as well as film history and offerings in the area of practical media work.
