The Cinemaxx in Berlin opened on September 3, 1998 in the newly developed Potsdamer Platz / Leipziger Platz area.
For 25 years it was Berlin's cinema complex with the most seats - 3,434 seats in 19 halls.. The Cinemaxx was an important venue for the Berlin International Film Festival / Berlinale.
In 2023, electrically adjustable luxury leather chairs with tablets were installed in all halls. This reduced the total seating capacity of the house from 3,434 to 1,411 seats. At the same time, the lamination of all screens was attached to CinemaScope in 2023 and is no longer variable in any hall.
The outdoor area was also remodeled. The postcard with the photo taken by Jürgen Henkelmann is no longer current.
