SHORT FILM PROGRAMME AT THE TRAVELLING CINEMA
The heyday of European travelling cinemas stretched from the years 1896 until 1914. Having no fixed cinema buildings at that time, film was a transitory issue and appeared seldom as a feature-length cultural offer, but often in other entertainment contexts: for example on fairs as short film programmes of fairytale animations, funny skits and topicalities in the style of newsreels. Following the idea of travelling cinemas, on September 10 – the day of open monuments – Milieu-Kino will stand at Fortuna, the former Cinema of Youth. There, we present rarities from the rich history of these short films: hand-coloured animation films, erotic piquancies, anarchist slapstick interludes, x-ray films and predator pursuits. Access to and exit of the programme is possible at any time. Moreover, the team of Fortuna offers guided tours through the building and informs on their efforts around preserving the building and establishing a constant cultural programme.
