Wolf wants cinema to be a dream machine that creates unforgettable memories and encounters – real and fictional. Our two bespoke screening rooms were created in close collaboration with filmmakers to ensure that we provide image, sound and acoustic quality that does justice to the hard work of making a film.
Every Tuesday at 10:30 am Baby Wolfgang screens films for parents and their babies - Breastfeeding and sleeping is welcomed! During the screening we keep the volume low and have dimmed lighting, so that your babies feel comfortable and if there’s a baby that feels like shouting or crying during the film the other parents certainly understands, so no stress needed. We offer space to park the prams as well as a changing table, and after the screening there’s the opportunity to treat yourself to a drink and lunch in our beautiful café.
Every week we show a new film, always with subtitles (mostly in German but now and then with English subtitles), so that parents can follow the film regardless of a baby choir that decided to scream and sing.
BAR & CAFÉ
Wolf’s bar and café opens at 10am (weekends at noon) and closes late in the evening. It is a place to meet - with or without watching a film. We hope this space will be the home for many inspiring, drunken, sober, silly, earnest and unforgettable encounters. The bar is fully licensed, the coffee machine chews on fine, carefully chosen espresso beans and weekdays from 12 to 4pm our cook Machiko makes great lunches.
The Studio is under the same roof as the cinema but with a separate entrance on street level. It is the left brain of Wolf, where the boundaries of the traditional cinema screen are challenged. The Studio room is a versatile and convertible screening-, exhibition- or event space and its programme is concerned with all aspects of the moving image: be it analogue or digital, virtual or hyperreal. Its multi-functionality accommodates exhibitions, installations and live-performances. Wolf also offers regular workshops and discussions creating a space where film education, training and practice merge – where those curious about film and those who are experts meet and exchange.
The postproduction facilities will open later this year.
Now and then, Wolf also acts as a distributor and releases films – to our own and other cinemas – that don’t get regular distribution in Germany. These are films that we especially love, festival highlights and discoveries, works of directors that we feel especially close to and for which we want to generate enthusiasm beyond Wolf’s audience.
