Your first time here?
You can find some details about our cinema at Info
But here’s some basic information about how things work around here:
Most importantly: the screenings take place rain, hail or shine!
The Freiluftkino Kreuzberg is located in the beautiful courtyard of the Kunstquartier Bethanien, which is situated behind the building. Unfortunately, it is not possible to access the cinema via the Kunstquartier building itself. You have to walk around the building from Mariannenplatz, or you can enter via Adalbertstrasse. From there, you walk between buildings 23a and 23b through to the grassy area.
There you’ll find a beautiful green space, sheltered by the majestic former Bethanien hospital building. The site is wheelchair accessible and has hearing aid facilities, plenty of well-tended toilets and the latest digital projection technology and an enormous screen.
The closest and easiest public transport connection is at “Kottbusser Tor”. If you go to “Info” and scroll down to the “BVG” window, you can easily find out the best way to get here.
You can buy your tickets online quickly and easily and at no extra cost, and show them at the entrance either as a smartphone ticket or as a print-out. Or you can use our efficient box office on the night.
The cinema and the box office both generally open 30 minutes before the movie begins, but sometimes earlier, if necessary.
You can find a limited number of deckchairs on the left behind the kiosk. There is no guarantee that there will be deckchairs left when you arrive. If the deckchairs are all taken, we have plenty of spots on comfortable seats with high backs and armrests, and you can grab a cushion at the entrance.
There is no assigned seating, so it’s a case of “first come, first seated”, which means:
Even if you’ve purchased advanced tickets, it’s a good idea to come a little earlier if the weather is nice to make sure you snare a deckchair.
In the event of rain, deckchairs might not be handed out.
We ask all our guests to kindly return the deckchairs to the stacks after use.
Woollen blankets: we keep around 200 woollen blankets at the entrance for our guests. This is an additional service, and is not always available. If rain is forecast, they might not be handed out, or if they are, they might be collected when it starts to rain.
So if you want to be assured of having a blanket, you’re best off bringing one with you, just in case.
It’s also a good idea to bring warm clothing, even if the sun is shining when you arrive. This is Berlin, after all, and it tends to get cool when the sun goes down.
We provide food and beverages at reasonable prices at the kiosk. Our motto here is: fair prices for everyone instead of crazy specials.
We can only provide this service if all our guests do their bit to keep the cinema clean. That means bringing back your rubbish, bottles, cushions and deckchairs after the screening.
We ask that smokers show consideration for the people around them, and to please refrain completely from smoking cigars and joints in the presence of other guests. Please use ashtrays at all times, which you can pick up from the ashtray station next to the kiosk, and then bring them back at the end. Of course you don’t have to empty and wash them, we’ll take care of that.
Particularly if you bring your own food with you to the cinema, we ask you to please clean up before you leave – that’s fair enough, right?
You can lock up your bike in front of the cinema and on the fence around the venue. Just make sure you don’t block the emergency exits!
