I consider Werkstattkino the most unusual cinema in Munich. Before you go there, make sure that you have checked the address and the way to get there – although it is on a central and busy street, you can easily miss it. All you will see is a big wooden door that opens to an inner yard. Once you are in, turn right and follow the stairs down to the basement. You made it!
This looks more like a handmade small cinema: at the cinema’s foyer, a small table is the box office, and don’t expect any luxury inside the room – but this is part of its charm, anyway.
The cinema features mainly non-mainstream films, so no room for blockbusters here. Cult films are the stars: – there are also different theme-nights, theme -weekends or festivals. You can see anything: Japanese B-movies, gay porno, b-cut thrillers from the 70s, documentaries, the list is big…
On the website of the cinema, there is no mention of the program; the best way to find out what is on is to call, check the cinema section of the city portal (muenchen.de) or go there and be surprised!
