The Moviemento is one of the oldest film theaters in Berlin. It lives among Turkish supermarkets. And Imbisses and colorful vegetables surround its film poster-covered entrance six days a week. But despite its unexpected location, it’s a well-run little spot with great programming.
Most current films are shown in German, but sometimes they also show original versions. Just make sure you keep a good watch on the program. In the evening, they often have special classic cinema presentations-almost always in the original version. They also host a variety of small film festivals like the Queer Film Festival.
The venue itself is well worth a look, and you can always sit down and have a cup of coffee or beer while you check the program.
What I like most about this place, however, is that they truly have a film-loving spirit. It’s often the favorite place for local independent filmmakers to show their films and one of those little gems in cities that will provide you with that perfect mix of classical film, independent, documentary and even local.
