History
plus
Golden stucco, red velvet, and over 100 years of history make the Passage a favorite among Neukölln's cinemas. Since 2021, the new foyer with café completes the offer.In 1910, the "moving picture theater" Excelsior opened in a newly built social hall. The cinema, which has borne the name Passage since 1920, survives two world wars relatively unscathed. But in the 1960s, it fell victim to the Berlin cinema crisis. Color television and the building of the Wall took their toll on the cinema, which is why it closed its doors in 1968. It spent the next twenty years as a warehouse for furniture.It was not until 1989 that it was revived and thoroughly renovated by the Yorck Kinogruppe. In the landmark-protected building, the historic Cinema Hall 1 now glows again in its original splendor. Three more halls have been added by remodeling the building and the former balcony. It is undoubtedly one of the most beautiful auditoriums in Berlin. In 2021, the foyer and the halls in the basement were redesigned by the renowned Batek architects. The concept combines the tradition of the house with an appetite for the future.

1910

Opening of a "Gesellschaftshaus" with the Excelsior movie theater.

1920

The cinema is renamed Passage, a name it still carries today.

1968

The Passage falls victim to the Berlin cinema crisis and is demoted to a furniture warehouse. For two decades, dust and woodworms dominate the space.

1989

The Yorck Group arrives and brings light into the darkness. After almost two years of careful renovation, the cinema opens with three additional screens in the fall of 1989, only a few weeks before the fall of the Berlin Wall.

2012

The Passage is digitized. Shortly thereafter, original versions also enter the program here for the first time.

2021

From the second Covid lockdown, the entire cinema awakens in new splendor after thorough renovation.
