The most traditional cinema of the Cinnemaxx group in Hamburg takes its visitors on a short journey through time and at the same time offers entertainment away from the usual blockbusters.

Sophisticated entertainment with Fifties Charme

Even the bright red "Holi" lettering is reminiscent of an American diner of the 50s, the original interior design is mostly exactly the same as it was over 60 years ago.
The cinema was opened in 1951 with one large hall, which was however rebuilt, modernised and adapted several times over the years, so that now two halls are available.
In the big hall, which offers space for up to 450 spectators, you can admire what is probably the only listed screen curtain in the world. 
The curtain, which was handcrafted by the artist Friedrich Schwiek and decorated with sequins, shows various glittering Hamburg landmarks on a grey background and was extensively restored a few years ago.
The unique cinema does not only captivate by its interior, but above all by the program, in which it is less about big effects than about powerful stories and real feelings. Art in other words. It fits that even difficult films get a chance to find their audience in the Holi. Every now and then there are even broadcasts of opera or ballet productions from the Royal Opera House London and the Metropolitan Opera New York.

CITY AREA PORTRAIT Eimsbüttel & Eppendorf

Here, one can find magnificent old building façades, local and exquisite restaurants as well as fancy boutiques and owner-operated shops. While Eppendorf is rather fancy, one can feel the hanseatic serenity in Eimsbüttel. Both districts offer much green and water and are hence with good reason very popular neighbourhoods in Hamburg.
