A multiplex of epic proportions. With a good 2,000 seats and 10 screens, as well as a spacious foyer with four restaurants and bars, this cinema offers its guests a well-rounded leisure programme. The architecture inside and outside the building alone, unique in Germany, make for a superb theatre experience.

Due to its diverse programming and outstanding, high-quality facilities, the Filmpalast at ZKM ranks in the top ten multiplex theatres in Germany.
