In a city not exactly known for its subversive culture, how ironic that it should be home to one of the most unconventional cinemas in the country. As hard to find as the films it shows are to pronounce, this place rests inconspicuously in the basement of an inner yard. In this den of experimental wonders, one can discover any film you could never think of—B-movies, gay porno, cult horrors, propaganda, it’s all here to expand the mind and baffle the brain. Back in the ‘80s, they even had run-ins with the law for their film program, screening films like Nekromantik, which were banned at the time. The actual cinema is pretty pokey and a table serves as the box office but all this oozes a certain charm and quaintness. As well as the cinema, Werkstatt Kino is the proud owner of over 1000 rental films, each one weirder than the next, and you can take them away and turn your living room into an arthouse paradiso. That’s how Werkstatt Kino started after all.
