This cinema is an institution. It has the charm of an older time when movies were special.In addition it holds a world record of showing the Rocky horror picture show since more than 40 years. Dress up and join!

Lichtspiele is the same now as it was 25 years ago, when I lived in Munich. Recently I visited again, and it all seemed the same, with the latest English-language movies, no subtitles. It's popular enough that on a Saturday evening, a showing of a...More
