The cinema in the Filmmuseum Potsdam

The Film Museum Potsdam is located in the Royal Stables — the oldest building in the city — built in 1685 as the royal stables of the Potsdam City Palace. The Palace served as a residence for the Electorate of Brandenburg and then Prussian Kings. But the structure has seen many lives.

Originally constructed as an orangery, the baroque building was later transformed, by King Frederick William I. in the early 18th century, as a stable for the royal horses. Several decades later, Frederick the Great gave the historic structure a makeover. He gave the task to Sanssouci's architect Georg Wenzeslaus von Knobelsdorff, who gave the complex its present look.

Starting in 1981, the Film Museum Potsdam, which was formerly the Film Museum of the GDR, and its café todays "Genusswerkstatt" have resided in this magnificent building. After 1990, the complex was placed under the administrative auspices of the Federal State of Brandenburg — presenting the history of film and unified Germany.
