Ufa’s main premiere theater in Berlin’s western district of Charlottenburg. The Ufa Gloria-Palast opened on 26th January 1926 with “Tartuffe”. It was designed in a Gothic style by architects Ernst Lessing and Max Bremer. It had a seating capacity of 1,200. The cinema was the site of the first German ‘talkie’, and site of the first showing of the classic “Der blaue Engel”(“The Blue Angel”).
It was destroyed by allied bombs in November 1943, leaving just the ruins of the outer walls.
A new Gloria Palast cinema was built on the site, and was set within an apartment building. It opened on 2nd January 1953 and closed on 6th August 1998, to be converted into a Benetton clothing store (it has its own page on Cinema Treasures).
