Cinemas in Cologne – The best houses in town

You need another plan for your Friday night in Cologne? It is too cold outside to do anything, but also too bad to spend the evening at home. Then cinema is always a good alternative. In beautiful Cologne there is not only a considerable selection of conventional cinemas, but also some specials, such as the open-air cinema at the Kranhäuser or a car cinema in Porz. The selection speaks for itself. We at FIV have listed the highlights of the city for you – Have fun!

Residence – Noble cinema at the Hansaring

May I introduce – one of the noble cinemas of the city of Cologne. “Residence”. The special thing about this cinema is not only the beautiful and luxurious ambience, but also the possibility to drink a tasty cocktail after going to the cinema.

Cinedom – Cinema experience at the Mediapark

Directly at the Mediapark in Cologne you will find a cinema giant, the Cinedom. It is not only the fifth largest cinema of its kind but also one of the most popular cinemas in Cologne.

Sion summer cinema – cinema evening under the starry sky

Even on hot summer days, there is nothing against a visit to the cinema. However, when the sun is shining and the weather is nice, you usually don’t want to sit in the dark cinema auditorium. Here is our editorial tip: The Sion summer cinema. This cinema offers the perfect opportunity to watch a film in the cinema even on warm days. In addition, one should not miss the beautiful view of the Kranhäuser and the Cologne Cathedral.

Cinenova – Cinema, Open-Air and Live Ballet

The cinema “Cinenova” is known for its wide range of offers. Not only can you watch the next cinema hits, but you can also enjoy a varied open-air feeling. In addition, there are live broadcasts of ballet, among other things, as in hardly any other cinema. The package will then be rounded off with a beautiful beer garden and restaurant. Et Voilà – your Saturday is saved.

Wie wäre es mit Kino bei dem Wetter? Ein absolutes Schmuckstück ist das OFF Broadway #Arthauskino auf der #Zülpicherstrasse! Nicht nur die Filmauswahl ist stets beeindruckend auch die Geschichte! Die erste Eröffnung war bereits 1945 und die zugehörige Kneipe aus den 50ern zählte zu den ersten Studentenkneipen auf der Zülpicher 😊 Schön, dass es so einen #Veedelschatz noch gibt! 😍 P.S. Auch wenn das Wetter regnerisch ist, die Musik aus Love&Mercy – einem Porträt über das Pop-Genie Brian Wilson der Beach Boys – verbreitet auf jeden Fall gute Laune und macht Lust auf Sommer! #Köln #Kino #offbroadway #beachboysmovie #loveandmercy #gutelaunemusik #kwartierlatäng #zülpicher
