The Hackesche Höfe Kino opened in 1996 in the top floor of the landmark protected “Hackeschen Höfe”, in the historic Mitte district of Berlin. Amongst Berlin’s repertory cinemas, this independent theatre is an architectural treat with its five screens seating 685 people and an elongated foyer. This cinema has clear lines, openly accessible constructions, and an excellent screening technology: 4 K projectors in all theatres.
We have committed ourselves to European art house cinema, independent movies and auteur cinema as well as championing innovative filmmaking talents from all quarters making up the varied programme of this cinema venue which always had a focus on documentaries. Almost without exception we screen the films in their original language with German or English subtitles.
Lots of highlights as previews of most exciting and innovative films, film festivals, premieres and panel discussions with quite interesting international guests offer especially to young audience a great attraction.
Working together with universities, NGOs, foundations and non-profit organisations we try to create a place inspiriting lively debates on contemporary issues concerning young people.
For schools we offer the French and English film festivals Cinéfête and Britfilms. This year we also participate in “SchulKinoWochen” and organize individual screenings for classes.
Now in its 20th year since its launch, the cinema has remained true to itself by showcasing quality films, despite the developments in the film industry tend to discard them because of economic reasons.
An excellent service and quality is always of great importance on location, on our website and via Facebook.
