The Urban Cinema Experience in Berlin

One of the things I really appreciate about Berlin is that ordinary things often come wrapped in special ways to make it more intriguing. We are really quite privileged when it comes to entertainment and culture. Take for instance going to the movies. Of course we have the traditional multiplex and small program cinemas. But then there are also luxury theaters with VIP treatment, glamorous vintage cinemas reminiscent of the old days, shabby underground locations with art flicks, mobile kinos projected on fire walls, open air screenings with whirlpools and so many other unusual ways to experience movies.

The upcoming Audi Urban Cinema is yet another event that will nurture our high standards in light entertainment. The popular series is already in its fourth year and will once again raise the bar for cinematic experiences. Last year the event took place inside the courtyard of the Kulturbrauerei which was already pretty great as a backdrop for the movies. But this year they’ve stepped up moving over to the riverbanks of the Spree setting up their screen at the Arena.

Just like last year there will be 3 nights of movie screenings – some of the biggest film highlights paired with a selection of short films which you can enjoy with drinks and street food in cosy deck chairs or on picnic blankets. The highlights are of course the special seating inside the Audi models or the little living room set-ups with sofa chairs.

The selection of films this year is exquisite as always! The first day is dedicated to a new Berlin classic: Oh Boy starring Tom Schilling. It’s a heart-warming comedy about a young guy who has a bit of a hard time to find his way in the big city. On the second day you’ll get to see yet another Berlin comedy, but Traumfrauen is more of the chick-flick variety portraying a couple of fabulous single girls that are too good at being single. The final film on the third day is an American Blockbuster that earned a couple of Oscars earlier this year. Watch Charlize Therone kick some ass in the feminist Mad Max: Fury Road.
