Kosmos today, may 2006, is slightly altered to a discotheque, with restaurant and bars. The main, original auditorium is fully accessable, and certainly worth a visit. The seating area of course now is replaced with bars and dancefloor. Nevertheless the Kosmos is still in good shape, as good as it gets, not being a cinema theatre. Felix Kruse

Since autumn 2005 the Kosmos cinema is closed for business. There are by january 2006 no further information about the future for this remarkable multiplex. The added smaller auditoria are situated underground, surrounding the original Kosmos, hence the recent facade being the original. Felix Kruse

The Kosmos opened as the Kosmos 1,000, as it had at the time 1,000 seats;very precise, very communist, very German! The architects were Josef Kaiser and Herbert Aust who also designed the Kino International located further along Karl-Marx Allee. Seating is located in orchestra and balcony levels. The main original cinema is basically untouched since opening and was given Listed building status in 1978. It now seats 984 and is equipped with Dolby Digital, SDDS, DTS and is THX certified.

The 9 other screens are built around it at the sides and to the rear.
