kinokompendium.de - Berlin's independent cinema guide - 25th Anniversary, November 2023

The 70mm Newsletter
Written by: Benjamin Kohzer, kinokompendium.deDate: 06.11.2023
A big anniversary for a unique website in the German cinema landscape: The kinokompendium.de is 25 years old. The two cineastes Benjamin Kohzer and Christian Kitter began compiling an overview of all the capital's cinemas out of passion in 1998. Handmade, private and ad-free right from the start. On their entertaining foray through Berlin's diverse cinema scene, they describe the history, architecture and current state of the cinemas.

The Kinokompendium has currently visited and described over 166 cinemas (including open-air cinemas and closed movie theaters) with over 380 screens.

Although the Kinokompendium.de does not specialize in 70mm and presents only a few images from the projector rooms, there are detailed descriptions with beautiful photos of all open auditoriums / cinemas with 70mm projection:

• Arsenal - Hall 1, Berlinale Palast, Delphi Filmpalast am Zoo, International, Zoo Palast - auditorium 1 & 2.

Closed theaters with 70mm projection can also be found in the cinema guide:

• CineStar Original in Sony Center Hall 8, Filmpalast Berlin and Royal Palast.

The exclusive photos are the centerpiece. The kinokompendium.de presents over 1,500 professional photos that form a unique archive of Berlin's cinema landscape. New and up-to-date photos are constantly being added throughout the year. The website sometimes has the last, sometimes even the only pictures of closed cinemas. In total, the collection comprises over 6,000 different motifs. This has been arousing the interest of thousands of cineastes and organizations for decades. Because only here can you find a detailed yet compact representation of all Berlin cinemas, foyers and auditoriums.

"We are very proud of this milestone," says creator Benjamin Kohzer. "When kinokompendium.de went online, the Internet was still young and descriptions of movie theaters were an absolute novelty. Even in the age of the Internet giants, we cover a niche that no one else does. In return, we get a lot of encouragement from moviegoers and experts who use and appreciate our lovingly curated cinema guide. Just knowing that the Berlinale uses us for research every year is great. Kinokompendium.de is a wonderful hobby with no end in sight."
