Kino International cinema Berlin by SvenBerlin

Until 1989, Kino International was the main theater for premieres in the GDR. Multiple films produced by the DEFA (state-owned film studio) held their premieres here. Especially important for the party and national leadership were the eight rows with optimal views and extra legroom. Before and after premieres, state visitors sojourned in the "Representation Room", today called the Honecker Lounge. In the basement, a small bunker and elevator were later added for the state leadership. The Kino's last premiere in the GDR was Heiner Carow's Coming Out on November 9, 1989, the day the Berlin Wall fell.

Today, the International is used by many filmmakers for premieres due to the theater's ambience and is one of the venues of the Berlinale. Visitors from Berlin are fond of the theater's history and special atmosphere. The large film posters on the outside of the theater show the film of the week and are still painted by hand.

My home town is in Finland, almost in Lapland.
Funny I say its home, but where you come, thats where you are from I guess.

And where is your home town ?

I mean. its a bit wider, with the windows, and longer towards the back, and I think it has an extra floor, and a big round cylindrical thingy on the top.
So with 50% bigger I mean, its wider, longer, has one more floor than this. Its about half bigger in volume. I cant be sure because I cant measure it easily, but I think it is.

I mean, in my home town there is a theater, that looks exactly like this, but its 50% bigger than the original, and I did not know it before. And it is a much smaller city than Berlin.

what do you mean with 50 % bigger ? I think the size is not so different than the original one.

Also special thanks for this, I never knew the theater in my home town is almost an exact replica of this one, right to the style and decor.
Only difference is its 50% bigger in a city 1/10th of Berlin.

Please add (East Germany) for the post unification generations and (DDR) for the pre-unification people (like me) who are used to the original.
I actually had to google GDR just to be absolutely sure.

I also googled DDR and got DanceDanceRevolution. I feel so old now.
