5 cinemas in Berlin / Germany


At all I don't like multiview cards where one little picture shows a cinema. But this postcard is different: it shows 5 cinemas in Berlin. (And there are some good multiview postcards from only one cinema.)
You can see on this postcard:
  • Kosmos, opened in 1962 and closed in 2005.
    Josef Kaiser and Herbert Aust were the architectures of this cinema with 1000 seats in one hall. For more information and pictures look at great Kinokompendium.
  • Kino International, opened in 1964.
    For more information and pictures look at great Kinokompendium.
  • Filmtheater Colosseum, was planned by famous cinema-architecture Fritz Wilms and opened in 1924.
    The film producer Arthur Brauner acquired the grounds in 1993 and built in 1997 a multiplex with 10 halls.
    For more information and pictures look at great Kinokompendium.
  • Lunik Lichtspiele, opened in 1961 and closed in 1961.
    It was planned by Josef Kaiser and had about 500 places.
  • Filmtheater Gérard Philipe, opened on December 18, 1960 and closed in 1979.
    Gérard Philipe (1922-1959) was a French actor, very popular also in East Germany.
The logo bft betweenthe photos of cinema Kosmos and Kino International stands for VEB Berliner Filmtheater, the East German state cinema company in Berlin.

At all a well done postcard from 1964.
