The Berlin “Zoo Palace”—one of the largest and best-known film theaters in Germany and decades of venue of the Internationals Berlin Film festival—is one of the few remaining palaces that were built in the 1950s for the celebration of moving pictures. With its elegantly curved lines its architecture was an expression of optimism of the “Wirtschafswunder” in Germany. Photographs by Christine Kisorsy capture the essential aspect of the Faszinosums cinema: the aesthetics of space and architecture. The large photos bring the elements and details of architectural design to evidence: color, shape, and material. With a foreword by Dieter Kosslick, director of the International Film Festival, as well as an essay by film writer Michael Althen on the eventful history of cinema Zoo Palast.
