The legendary Lichtburg – located in the heart of the city of Essen – was and is Germany’s largest film palace with 1,250 seats.  At its opening in 1928 the cinema was regarded as Germany’s most modern film theatre.  The famous auditorium was completely destroyed by fire in 1943.  Its renovation in the style of the 50s made the cinema one of the most elegant film theatres in the country.  For decades it has held film galas and national and international premieres.  Now with protected building status, the Lichtburg was thoroughly refurbished and restored from March 2002 to March 2003 and fitted with the latest in cinema and stage technology.
