The Moviemento is one of the oldest film theaters in Berlin. It lives among Turkish supermarkets and Imbisses and its entrance is lovingly framed by colorful vegetable stands 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 a lot of new arrivals are now available in original versions, just keep on eye on the program to make sure. They often screen classic cinema in the evening and host a variety of small film festivals like the ever-popular Porn Film Festival as well as 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 classic, independent, documentary and local cinema.
