Zeise Kino, Hamburg

Extracted from Authentically Hamburg.

The bolts and screws that held together Hamburg’s ships were once made here. Now within the old industrial interior are cafés, bars and a comfortable three-screen cinema. Programming ranges from mainstream to arthouse, with some titles in the original language (look for Original Fassung or OF), something that’s surprisingly uncommon in a country with such a good command of English. For those of us who struggle with decisions, on Tuesday nights Zeise shows a surprise film in its original language, a sort of cinematic lucky dip.
