When the movie theater Wolf Kino opened in this still rather unnoticed corner of Neukölln, I was really excited but also a bit skeptical. Would it be hip and expensive, messing with the DIY charm of the neighboring K-Fetisch café and Heiner’s bar? Fortunately, it turned out that this cinema with the iconic wolf figures hanging outside would go with the flow. The Wolf restaurant and bar area are warmly but not overly decorated, the multiple screening rooms as small and cozy as living rooms. My favorite time to go is in the evening, when the bar is beautifully illuminated with candles, and at lunchtime, when out of an almost invisible kitchen window you are handed delicious dishes of the day by the Japanese chef Machiko (she also cooks at the bar Broschek).
If you are curious: Outside the door, in a transparent mail box, you can grab the Wolf crew’s DIY cinema magazine, always with a cool poster of a movie currently playing. Definitely check their program for special screenings and events, which they carefully curate. This arthouse movie theater has a classy DIY charm that you can surprise others with or simply enjoy by yourself.
