First Stage theatre

A former cinema is becoming a theatre for 300 people

The former Kina cinema in the middle of Hamburg Altona is only known by a few. In the sixties it was also home to some shops before it was used as a supermarket in the seventies


Since the mid-eighties photographers used the large space to created car campaigns. Now a new chapter will be added to this lively history. The former cinema is transformed to a theater hosting nearly 300 people. It is a stage for young actors, dancers and singers.

For Germany's first and largest stage school the Kina theater will be their own stage for self-created productions. Since the opening the Kina theater is getting more popular ever since.
