What is this project all about?

Cinema has always been more than just a room for screening movies. It is a social and cultural space, a space of encounter and perception. Architects designed buildings especially for those spaces. Today, as well as in the past, they change permanently. aims at providing access to those spaces as well as to cinema culture in the past and the present. It will gather information about historically, architecturally, and curatorially unique cinemas worldwide on one platform. It intends to offer stories about topics related to cinema and going to the movies. And it will show you the way to the next cinema worth visiting – as a screening room or a cultural space. will welcome contribution of content from everybody being interested in the topic or passing an intriguing cinema. For keeping up a high level quality standard editorial supervision will be provided.

What is the project goal and who is the project for?

The site shall offer a space of communication and debate about cinema and its localities. It will enable you to observe and remember cultural developments. But it is also going to be a practical directory to unique cinemas. We would like to reach everybody who is fascinated by cinema and its magic just the way we are.

Why would you support this project?

We want to present outstanding cinemas online. So far many of them have simply not yet been registered. In this sense, we would like to offer practical orientation and overview. But that’s not all – our platform combines well-grounded information and thematic approach. Our perspective on cinema will be a global and a broad one. Such a view is overdue, given the fundamental changes cinema and projection sites are subjected to due to digitalization.

How will we use the money if the project is successfully funded?

The concept and outline of the website as well as the technical infrastructure have already been elaborated. Now we need your financial support to implement the website professionally. It is planned to be based on drupal which we cannot implement only by ourselves. That is why we need a professional software engineer, and to mandate him or her we need your support!

Who are the people behind the project?

cinelandmarks e.V. is an institution acknowledged and accredited as a non-profit organization by the federal state of Berlin. We are running the project exclusively voluntarily in our spare time and we meet monthly to push our concept. We are cineasts but also people just enjoying to go to the movies and being interested in places, buildings and their stories – no matter if they are right next door to our homes or at the other side of the planet.

Cinema is dead? Long live cinema!
