Schauburg by night

During a full [2006] October weekend, classic epics will be shown in the impressive 70mm format on a huge 136 sqm curved screen in the famous classic cinema. Come and celebrate with us the BIG weekend, in the BIG film format on our a BIG screen. Share the excitement with visitors from all around the world - including Germany, Denmark, England, USA and France - and hopefully many more.


The Schauburg Cinerama is one of the few surviving cinemas, with 70mm projectors, a red curtain and the huge curved and wide 70mm screen. It’s the perfect framework for the presentation of 70mm with 6-track sound. Some films are in original versions and some "70mm Vintage Classics" are dubbed into German.

The 2006 Weekend program will be a variety of old and new 70mm films with a GALA performance on Saturday evening celebrating the 100th years of the Schauburg cinema. A mixed program with some speeches by the local authorities, some cultural authorities from abroad, some (local) stars, some VIPS, some pieces of early talking movies, some piece of early CinemaScope, some pieces of 70mm large format rarities.

We are working on a small exhibitions and the traditional breakfast and lunch functions Saturday and Sunday.

For 3 days we present the king of all film formats: 70mm and 6-track stereo.

Feel the illusion of reality in 70mm film and “The first person experience” from the front row

Celebrate with us when we present the classic movies in the original format on the big screen, where they were born to be seen, in a traditional road show cinema. Experience the extremely sharp images and crystal clear 6 track stereo on the curved Cinerama screen.

Around the world in Three Days on the curved Cinerama screen. From the past to the present and to the future - everything is included - in the majestic 70mm format at the Schauburg cinema in Karlsruhe.
