The main body of the Kosmos cinema, which today includes the main hall, was designed by architects Josef Kaiser, Herbert Aust and Günter Kunert. The building was inaugurated as a cinema in 1961. With 1001 seats, it was the largest, most modern and most popular film theatre in the former GDR. In February 1998 UFA took over this historic building. The cinema has been extensively modernized in line with the requirements of historically listed buildings. No less than 70 million DM were invested in the construction of nine additional halls and parking lot.
This location, which is suitable for a wide range of events, has been in the hands of KOSMOS KG since 01.08.2005. It is barely two minutes by car from Alexanderplatz. KOSMOS KG is cognizant of the historical significance of this building as a meeting place and communication point.
Since the building fits in perfectly with the architectonic ensemble on the Karl-Marx-Allee, the largest single collection of historical buildings in Germany, preserving the basic architectural style was a top priority during the modernization work. Thanks to the unequaled charm and the extensive restructuring of this listed building, it has reclaimed the status of a popular public location.
