Museum Lichtspiele – Cult cinema in OV

I love cinema but I hate one thing: dubbed films!

Therefore going to the cinema in Germany is a challenge for me. I discovered Museum Lichtspiele cinema while looking for cinemas where films in original version are shown.

This is one of the oldest cinemas in Munich, opened in 1910. It lies in a very beautiful corner of Munich, close to the Deutsches Museum, next to the river Isar. When it comes to the decoration and atmosphere: it definitely does not have munch in common with the big multiplex cinemas. Contrary to the impersonal, cold, modern decoration, this cinema looks like it comes from another century.

It consists of three halls with different decorations. My favourite one is Kino 2 the ‘cultest’ room of all. With its dark red seats, the big chandeliers and the copy statue of Michelangelo’s David in natural size with the red painted lips, the room offers a unique atmosphere.

It is the best place to watch the famous cult film “Rocky Horror Picture Show”, which has been shown – in original version, of course! – non-stop for the last 30 years, every Saturday at 23:00. It is a must-see, even for those who have seen the film, as there is not a better place to enjoy a cult film like this!
