Anklam is a small town in north-eastern Germany, today with 12,000 inhabitants. In 1989, here lived approximately 19,000 inhabitants. At this time, there were a cinema and a theatre. The theater is still being used under the name Vorpommersche Landesbühne.
The 1992 feature film Stilles Land tells about a theater in the north German provinces in the autumn of 1989 in the dying GDR. The ensemble of an (unnamed) small town theater is rehearsing the play Waiting for Godot. The film is Andreas Dresen's first feature film. Today he is one of the best-known German directors
The feature film about a cinema in the GDR has not yet been shot.
The cinema Lichtspiele was opened in 1914 with 450 seats and closed in 1990 (or later). The building no longer appears to be standing. I like the figures on the building.
The 1959 sent postcard was printed in the 1950s. At that time, the street was called Stalin-Strasse. Today the street's name is Pasewalker Strasse, it was the Stettiner Strasse in 1914.
