On December 19th2012, after four months of renovations, the reopening of the “Gloria Filmpalast,” a cinema rich in tradition in Stachus, Munich was celebrated with the premiere of Tom Cruise’s film “Jack Reacher”. The Gloria Filmpalast shone with a new gleam as a first-class luxury renovated cinemawith leather seats, champagne and caramel flavoured popcorn. Kinopolis, the Wiesbaden cinema operator, which in addition to the Gloria Palast also operates the Mathäser in Munich, invested about 1.2 million euros in the renovations. The results are clear to see: with the motto “higher prices for higher services,”it has positioned itself as Munich’s first high-class cinema and gives cinema-goers a special experience watching films from €17.50.
To qualify as a luxury cinema, several changes were necessary. The seating was reduced by nearly half to 240 seats and now provide the highest comfort. At Munich’s high-class cinema, you can expect small theatreboxes in the upper ring,which are usually only found in theatres, and loungers made from high-quality leather and wood panelling. You are welcomed with a refreshing welcome drink at the champagne bar with white leather decor. A variety of culinary delights from tasty Bavarian delicacies to fine anti-pasti enables visitors to have an unforgettable experience at the cinema. All snacks and drinks are served to you in your seat so that you can concentrate fully on the film. The familiar advertising section has also been replaced by short films and live acts,which gives you a similar experience to a theatre production.
At the Gloria Filmpalast, which first opened its doors in 1956, tradition and modern come together in a unique way. Experience the enjoyment of film with action-packed blockbusters and beloved classics. Escape into a different world with chilled champagne and a highly enjoyable film experience!
