This must be one of luxury place in the DDR. So nostalgic and very nice ambiance. The quality of the cinema also very good compare to many other cinemas in the city of Berlin. So well recommended to film , architecture and history lovers

There's no popcorn, no gallons of fizzy drinks, no huge queues and no astronomical prices.
Both exterior and interior of the Kino International are exactly as they were in GDR times. It's not difficult to imagine people under a socialist regime coming to view the...More
Kino International apparently used to be the no. 1 cinema in East Germany and luckily the interior has been keep in a period style with retro furniture and the dimmed lighting reminded me of East Germany. You can also have a leisurely drink beforehand at...More
This great movie theatre is supposed to be renovated in the 90ies, but the breath from the East German culture elite still lingers.
The enormous crystal lamps in the luguber lobby bar are shaded by tar from all cigarettes. The chairs are still smelling.

The centre of Berlin, Mitte is most famous for sights like the Brandenburg Gate, Alexanderplatz, and Museum Island. The central location makes this one of the city's most expensive places to live. It is here the oldest traces of the city can be found, and evidence of some significant transformations, as well. The gangsters that once ruled the impoverished streets between Alexanderplatz and Hackescher Markt have given
way to an international crowd pursuing fashionable designer clothes, the newest food trends and frequenting the many craft shops. Graphic designers have taken up residence in what used to be backyard barns and stables. There are still vestiges of the old days, however. The occasional housing complex is a reminder of the neighbourhood’s past. And if you look carefully, an old 1920s ball house nestled amongst the art galleries and exhibitions of Auguststrasse can still teach you how to dance the old fashioned way.
