Arsenal Kino

Located in the Schoneberg district of Berlin. Originally opened in 1912 as the Bayreuther Lichtspiele, it had a seating capacity for 280. This cinema, run by the Arsenal - Institute for Film and Video Art and funded by the Federal Government, opened on 3rd January 1970 as an art house venue with an eclectic programming policy. It was redesigned by architect Wolfgang Rasper. In April 1999, during a Cinema Theatre Association(UK) visit to Berlin, I saw Warren Beaty in “Bonnie and Clyde”!

In June 2000 it moved to a new, purpose-built, two screen Arsenal in Potsdamer Platz in the Tiergarten district which has its own page on Cinema Treasures. In September 2013 the now unrecognisable former Arsenal Kino was occupied by a retail unit.
