Kino Internacional | Berlin
The Kino International is a film theater in Berlin, built from 1961 to 1963. It is located on Karl-Marx-Allee in former East Berlin. It hosted premieres of the DEFA film studios until the fall of the Berlin Wall in 1989. Today it is a protected historic building and one of the venues of the annual Berlin International Film Festival (Berlinale).
The theater was designed by Josef Kaiser in 1958, being the winning design in a competition, while Heinz Aust was appointed as the architect managing the construction. It comprises a three-story reinforced concrete frame construction with light sandstone façades.
After its two-year construction, the theater opened on 15 November 1963 with a grand opening premiere of the Soviet revolutionary drama Optimistic Tragedy.
It took me a few evenings to wait and catch the right light. The following equipment was used when shooting: Fujifilm GFX 50Sii, Canon TS-E 24mm, Canon TS-E 50mm.
And here's an example of how it was and how it's become.
Thank you all!
