Located in the city centre district of Uhlenhorst. The Bach Theater was opened in 1912 and was operated by F. Lehmkuhl. It was equipped with a Klangfilm sound system in 1931. In 1932 it was taken over by Helene Flick and was re-named Primus-Palast. The size of the stage was 6x8 meters. In 1938 it was taken over by Helene Meininger and it was re-named Olympia-Palast. In 1943 the cinema was badly damaged by Allied bombs during World War II.
