Metropolis is a communal cinema that relies on membership to support its excellent programming. Its upscale location next to the Opera makes it an elegant destination for film series and retrospectives. Filmfest Hamburg holds many screenings at the Metropolis, and the festival of German cinema history, Cinefest, takes place here every November.
Metropolis features a “DaF,” or German as a Foreign Language series, held in cooperation with the Colon Language Center, located nearby. Or come for the “Seniorenkino:” one Thursday a month, seniors get served up a classic film plus Kaffee and Kuchen.
Membership is a bargain at 25 Euros per year, which admits you to all screenings for 4 Euros rather than the standard 7.
