Capitol in Rostock / Germany

cinema Capitol Rostock postcard 1964

Rostock on the Baltic Sea is the most populated city in Mecklenburg-Vorpommern.
The cinema Capitol opened its doors on 29 August 1938 - and they are still open.
There were 1030 seats in one hall in 1938, now there are 1089 seats in four halls.

The cinema advertises the movie Verwirrungen um Topsy - a 1956 West German movie, originally named Der schräge Otto, directed by Géza von Cziffra. The movie came to East German cinemas on 5 July 1963.
It has not been customary to change the film title of a West German film for East German screens. I think that has to do with the fact that Otto Grotewohl (1894-1964) was Prime Minister of the GDR at that time.
