Taking over the entire south side of Aegidientorplatz. The Decla Litchspiele was opened in Autumn of 1920 by the Berlin based Decla chain. It had 1,082 seats. It was taken over by Ufa in 1924 and re-named Ufa Palace. It was destroyed by allied bombs in 1943.

It was rebuilt as a modern stage & screen theatre designed by architects Kluppenberg & Lichtenhahn with 1,452 seats. It opened on 12th March 1953 as the Ufa Theater am AEGI. It was closed in 1961 and the empty building was destroyed by fire in 1964.

A new Theater am Aegi now stands on the site, but it is a live theatre only (no films).
