Universum Lichtspiele

The Burgtheater Lichtspiele was opened in 1950 and was operated by Josef Eggert. The size of the stage was 11x3 meters and the CinemaScope screen installed in the mid-1950’s was 10x4 meters. Seating was provided in orchestra and balcony levels. In 1962 a pair of Fedi T 35/70 projectors for 35mm & 70mm film were added. The 6-channel stereophonic sound system could also reproduce Perspecta sound. The first movie screened in Todd-AO 70mm was “South Pacific” The Universum Lichtspiele was closed after 1971.
