There is a really nice little movie theater inside
Those gray autumn days getting you down? Just go to the movies!
For example, I recently went to Filmladen. For over 30 years, this art-house cinema has operated at Goethestraße, in the heart of Kassel’s Vorderer Westen (district of Kassel).
Although it may not be particularly impressive from the outside, there is a really nice little movie theater inside. You won’t find Hollywood blockbusters or commercial cinema here. Instead, Filmladen offers a wide range of European films, independent productions, documentaries, and the like.
The selection is relatively small, making it easy to choose. I bought my ticket and snacks at the same counter. (The man behind the counter seemed to be the only employee on site. In fact, a short time later he was the one who started the projector.) Admittedly, the snack selection could have been a bit wider. But the seats were as comfortable as my grandmother’s sofa, and with so many fewer seats, even someone sitting at the end of the row has a good view of the screen.
In short: Highly recommended and well worth checking out.
