History
plus
Germany's largest art house auditorium is located in a magnificent theater building at Bahnhof Zoo. From the temple-like exterior with stone lions and decorative vases, to the glittering interior, to the Cinemascope screen and an auditorium with over 600 seats, everything here is larger than life.For decades, the Delphi Filmpalast has been one of the city's most important premiere cinemas and Berlinale venues. Together with Bikini-Haus, Galerie C/O and Helmut Newton Museum, the cinema forms the cultural center of West Berlin. International jazz greats also perform in the "Quasimodo" in the basement of the building. The Delphi Filmpalast is one of the few remaining cinemas in Germany where films can still be shown in 70mm format. The fine selection of current productions is complemented by matinees and film premieres. And renowned filmmakers are not only occasionally on stage for Q&As, but also often among audience members.
