Bambi Kino

Opened in 1959 as the Luna Kino. In the early-1960’s, the Bambi Kino was reputed to be a small seedy cinema. It was in a room behind the cinema screen, that The Beatles resided on their first visit to Hamburg in August-November 1960 (prior to becoming famous). The Bambi Kino was owned by Bruno Koschmider, who also owned the Indra Club and the Kaiserkeller Club, both of which were where The Beatles performed during that initial visit to the city.

The Bambi Kino was closed in 1962 and building has been converted into apartments.
