Great example of Modernist architecture, one of most notable works of architect Erich Mendelsohn, built 1927-28 as main house for the dominant Ufa chain. Sadly heavily damaged in World War II, it was rebuilt as the Capitol Kino. Saved from demolition in 1978-81, it was rebuilt internally as a theatre. While the exterior is still Mendelsohn’s dynamic curved volume, the interior has little original remaining.
