Millerntor Lichtspiele / UFA Millerntor

Located in the St. Pauli district of the city centre, in front of the famed Reeperbahn. The Lichtspielhaus Millerntor was built in 1911 to the plans of architects Franz Jacobsen & Georg Radel. It was opened in 1912 and operated by Freiedrich Paul Stolze of Millerntor Theater GmbH/Ufa Konzern. In 1929 a Klangfilm sound system was installed. The cinema was modernized in 1932.

In 1940 the Millernor Lichtspielhaus was re-named Ufa Millerntor Theater. In 1943 it was heavily damaged by Allied bombs during World War II and was closed.

In 1950 following a restoration it was reopened with a reduced number of seats. CinemaScope and stereophonic sound were added in 1956 and the projectors were replace by Phillips FP5.

The cinema was closed in 1963 and was demolished.
