Calau is a community with about 7.700 inhabitants today.
The cinema was opened in 1938 with 375 seats, maybe in a new building. Its name was Kurmark-Lichtspiele. After 1950, it was only called Lichtspiele. Now it is closed.
But people of Calau can still go to the movies. The Protestant parish operates since 2013 a program cinema with a regular program once a month. Movies are shown in the community room in the parish hall next to the church.
