Previous Names: Central Theater
This theater, built in the "Jugendstil", a more minimalistic German form of Art Nouveau, opened in 1913 with the premiere of the Italian film "Antonio e Cleopatre" and is therefore one of the oldest surviving movie theaters in Germany. It was at that time the 40th picture theater in town, and by far the most beautiful and comfortable.
From 5th August 1945, it was re-named Central Theater and was used by American soldiers. This lasted until 19th December 1946, when it reverted back to its original name.
In 1997 the interior was beautifully renovated. Also, a new state-of-the-art sound system and a wide screen were put in, but great care has been taken to leave everything as authentically looking as possible.
