October 2020, arsenal cinema

It goes on...

COLLATERAL (Michael Mann, 2004)

From this month on, we will be screening films again on a daily basis albeit in one cinema only, Arsenal 1. In line with the new hygiene concept of the state of Berlin, our cinema now has a maximum capacity of 119 (increasing from 69 previously). To make up for the related reduction in mimumum distance, cinemagoers are requested to keep on their masks also while seated in the cinema. And yet, what better place could there be for Michael Mann’s thrillers and action films, most of which were shot in widescreen, to unfold. While Arsenal 2 has to remain closed for reasons of cost unfortunately, we have revamped our virtual cinema arsenal 3, which will in future relate directly to our institution's activities: the cinema program, Arsenal Distribution and Living Archive, our archival practice based on participation and production.
