Located in the east Hamburg district of Wandsbek. Originally opened in 1905 as a dance club, the original Harmonie Lichtspiele was opened in 1928 and had seating for 600. It was destroyed by allied bombs on 28th July 1943.

The cinema was rebuilt and re-opened on 20th April 1951 with Zarah Leander in “Gabriela”, and the star herself appearing in person at the premiere. It was the largest post-war cinema to be built in Hamburg, and seating was provided for 1,400, with 930 in the orchestra and 470 in the horse-shoe shaped balcony. The cinema had a stage, which was put into occasional use for staging opera and operetta performances.

The Harmonie Litchspiele was closed on 30th December 1968. By 2008 it had been converted into retail use and was a Budnikowsky & Strauss Innovation stores.
