Planning & Construction

Cinema 2000

In February 2023, renovation work on the "Cinema 2000" began with the dismantling of the almost 12.50-metre-high marquee dome. The striking orange and yellow striped supporting structure was used as a 180-degree cinema until the park closed. It is one of its landmarks and historical heritage at the same time. After the former amusement park closed, both the historic cinema projector and the walls of the cinema dome were destroyed by vandalism. Until the site was transferred to Grün Berlin in 2016, the structure, now over 30 years old, was exposed to wind and weather and is no longer roadworthy.

The first step was to dismantle the dilapidated and leaking dome roof. The exposed tubular steel construction was also dismantled. It is now stored on site and protected from the weather.

In terms of sustainability, the reuse of the metal support structure is planned. The components have already been inspected as part of an as-built survey and their suitability for refurbishment has been confirmed. After completion of the refurbishment, the dome will be rebuilt in the future Spreepark at the West Entrance. Re-roofed, it will serve as an exhibition and event venue for art and culture in the future.
