    Please don't be up off by only 3 stars  I DO still recommend this place. I mean after all it successfully employes serveral people who are obviously bored to death by their job but manage to survive! If you are the kind of person who lets their evening be spoilt by rude staff  spare yourself the trouble and don't come here. If you actually want to see the movie  go ahead. The cinema-rooms have a decent size and look quite new, the seats are comfy and of course there is the fabilous cuddle-couch  two seats attached so an annoying couple can snog around in front of you (I know it sounds synical, but that is not my intention, I LOVE the cuddle-couch and have been part of this annoying couple serveral times).

    The quality of the projection is fine and the cinemar offeres serval movies in their original language, meaning English, really.

    One thing that I honestly find god-awful though is the snack-bar. The popcorn tastes old and isnt crunchy at all, and  I think the whole selection at the snack bar is seriously overpriced, and I dont mean in an I-am-a-poor-student-kind of way, I mean it's is just unreasonable!

    So bring your own drink (hide it well) and enjoy a nice evening. After all  it is a beautiful location.

    They show movies in English. That's cool. But they don't know what they're doing, and they don't care. Pretty unprofessional from what I've seen.

    I saw "Snowpiercer" there, an international movie that has mostly English and occasionally Korean dialogue. They advertised this as a "Screening in English" and that it was the original version (OV). After some early title sequences written in German rather than English, there was indeed no German subtitles on the English dialogue. Alright, whatever. BUT, they didn't show *any* subtitles for the Korean dialogue in the film! What were the characters saying? I had to look online when I got home! If this were indeed the "original version" -- actually the international version since the original has Korean subtitles on the English dialogue -- then there'd be English text at the beginning and English subtitles during the Korean dialogue.

    When I spoke to an employee about this afterwards, they said that this was indeed the original version and that it's not their fault. Uhh, okay, original version or not, you're not showing the film properly. I pointed out that it was shown neither for a German-speaking audience nor an English-speaking audience, that what they showed actually comprised all three languages. They didn't care and didn't give any refund or discount.

    It's not that I care about the remaining 5 people who will see "Snowpiercer" (hey I thought it was pretty good), it's that this cinema simply doesn't give a shit that they're doing something so wrong that virtually *nobody* can follow the damn movie.

    Also, the place is messy as hell. The owner should pay for some more employees to clean up the place, and he also shouldn't hide behind the poor worker at the box office when customers are complaining about his failure to show a movie properly.

    Go see OmU movies at the Harmonie kino instead. They won't screw you.

    Behind the elegant façade lies a typical German multiplex cinema that's neither particularly cosy nor chic. Movies offered are also the typical fare one would expect from such a place.

    Prices are as steep as the carpets are sticky at the end of the evening, but the seats are comfortable even when watching a three hour epic. Personally, I also prefer having the choice of either paying upfront for the increasingly ubiquitous 3D glasses or bringing my own with me.

    The online booking system worked very well for me, which cannot be said about some other cinema chains' systems.

    On of the biggest cinemas in Frankfurt. offers many 3D movies. Ticket prices are little bit to high if no special promotions.

    Teure Preise, dreckige Kinosäle, klebrige Böden, keine hygienischen Toiletten (vor allem ist alles in schwarz mit dunklem Licht gehalten, damit man den Dreck nicht so sieht), unzureichender Service an den Ausgabestationen. Im Großen und Ganzen eine Frechheit, bei der Masse an Besuchern, nichts zu investieren.
