Kuchlin Cinema

Built by Karl Kuchlin, Kuchlin’s Variete-Theater was opened on 31st August 1912. It was designed by architectural firm Erlacher, Widmer & Calini in a Neo-Classical style. Later operating as the Kuchlin Cinema, it had a seating capacity for 1,230, with seats in orchestra, balcony and upper circle levels. In 1950 it was re-modelled to the plans of architect Emil K. Grauwiler. This auditorium now serves as Screen 1 and has retained its original features.

In 2006, Pathe built an additional 7-screen multiplex adjacent to the original cinema. Seating is now provided for 554 in Screen 1 (original auditorium), 149 in Screen 2, 303 in Screen 3, 154 in Screen 4, 316 in Screen 5, 190 in Screen 6, 316 in Screen 7 and 190 in Screen 8.
