A former dance hall, the Backhaus Kino opened, with 354 seats, in 1910. Name changes came quickly: Promenaden-Lichtspiele and Alhambra in 1919 and Corso in 1925, by which time it had been enlarged to 407 seats. From 1938 it became the Rio Kino, now with a capacity of about 500. Closed in 1993, it re-opened as a triple screen operation, seating 250 in Screen 1, 110 in Screen 2 and 65 in Screen 3.
I photographed it in April 1999, during the CTA visit to Berlin. It is not known when it closed but, in 2015, demolition is likely as a housing development is set to swallow up the wider area.
