The Kino International in Berlin Mitte opened in 1963 as a representative premiere cinema of the GDR. The detached building was included in the list of monuments in 1990 and has been part of the Yorck Cinema Group since 1991. Since then it has continued to operate as a daily cinema and as a venue for premieres and festivals.
Thanks to its festive and spacious architecture, the cinema is also suitable for numerous other event formats. The entrance area with the staircase hall illuminated by 242 light bulbs offers space for accreditation, cloakroom and the first drinks for your guests. Two wide stairs lead to the panorama bar. With a view of the television tower, there is room for the reception of all guests in a stylish atmosphere, including catering and bar. Due to the huge window front to the south side it is also ideal as a bright and stylish exhibition area. The cinema hall with its wide stage and state-of-the-art 4K projection technology is ideal both for glamorous award ceremonies and for a concentrated congress atmosphere.
Further rooms are concealed behind wallpaper doors on both floors: On the ground floor, the stairwell connects to the former Bertolt Brecht Library, a converted event room ideal for breakout sessions or as a catering baking area. Hidden to the side of the Panorama Bar is the Honeckerlounge, the former reception area for international state guests, which is suitable as a VIP area or production office, for example, as it also leads to the hall stage and the side exit via a hidden staircase.
Thanks to its special architecture, the cinema is also suitable for press conferences or for film and photo productions. Located in the heart of Berlin, 500m from Alexanderplatz, it is ideally accessible and in the immediate vicinity of numerous hotels in all categories. With 2,000 m² of versatile and stylistically unique event space, Kino International is one of the most extraordinary event locations in Berlin.
