Lichtblick Kino Kastanienallee 77 10435 Berlin

The Lichtblick-Kino is an independent arthouse cinema in Prenzlauer Berg. In addition to current arthouse films, our program offers many classics and regular retrospectives. We also give a lot of space to documentaries and short films as well as politically committed productions. Weekend afternoons are dedicated to children's cinema.

In addition to the changing program, special series of events with a special focus have become established at Lichtblick-Kino, such as "EXBlicks" or "Soundwatch Music Film Festival". Filmmakers are invited to the screenings as often as possible, and the intimate setting of the Lichtblick-Kino offers the opportunity for intimate exchanges and discussions.

With 32 seats, the Lichtblick-Kino is one of the smallest cinemas in the city, and its premises - the former salesroom and butcher's apartment in the oldest house in Prenzlauer Berg - have a very special charm.

The Lichtblick-Kino is run by a collective. Founded in 1994 as "Stattkino Berlin e.V.", the collective initially organized film series on political topics. In 1995, the Lichtblick-Kino was opened as a permanent venue in Wolliner Straße. Since 1998, it has had its home in the Kastanienallee 77 building project.

However, the Lichtblick has always been more than just a cinema: it is also a breeding ground for many projects and initiatives in Berlin's cinema landscape. Many former and current participants are now active in the cinema industry, as distributors, cinema operators or filmmakers.
