It was designed by architect Rudolf Eckmann for investors Becker & Ernst Rasmussen. It was operated by Renate Salfeld, Geisler & Kramer. Later operated by Meininger. The orchestra for silent movies was conducted by Max Herrmann.

It was equipped with CinemaScope in 1956 and had Ernemann VII projectors with Bauer B8 B lenses and a Klangfilm Euodyn/Bionor 4 channel sound system. It operated as the Thalia Lichtspiele and last operated as the Thalia Kino. It was closed on 30th December 1994 with Tom Hanks in “Forest Gump”.
