The Atrium in Stuttgart, Germany was built in late 1952 as a Cinemascope theatre with balcony. In 1959 it was rebuilt for the presentation of Cinemiracle/Cinerama and 70mm projection. It opened with “Windjammer” in Cinemiracle using 3 Philips FP 30 projectors and 35mm perforated soundplayer from Philips. The equipment was rented from Cinerama at that time.
All the big roadshows were shown at the Atrium. Running sometimes up to 90 weeks (like “Doctor Zhivago”). In the mid 70s the theatre was rebuilt into two screens. The orchestra was still running 70mm from the original projection booth, the balcony was the second auditorium. Later on another small installment was made in the uper foyer and in the cellar.
The Atrium had a slightly curved screen of 15 meters and was closed around 1997. Today it is a small shopping place.
