Built in 1913, the Cines was an impressive cinema that looked good both externally and internally. The architect was Oskar Kaufmann. By 1916 it was called the Union-Theater, it came under the control of the Ufa chain for the remainder of its life, with another name change from 1925-27 it was called the Theater am Nollendorfplatz. When the Berlin Premiere of Fritz Lang’s “Metropolis” took place in January 1927, the cinema had been re-named Ufa-Pavillon. This was the only time the full length version of the film was ever shown.

It remained the Ufa-Pavillon until 1943, when it was closed due to war damage by allied bombs. A block of 1960’s era apartments now stands on the site.
