Kino International, East Berlin, 1968

A photo taken in Schillingstrasse, in which a Trabbi is the sole vehicle, looking at the Kino International (built in 1963) in Karl-Marx-Allée, East Berlin, in 1968.  The Hotel Berol in the background was demolished and replaced with a building not much better in 1996 but the Kino (cinema) is still there, see below.  In this view it isn't screening a communist bloc film, but the American movie It's a Mad Mad Mad World from 1963, or in Germany Eine total total verrückte Welt, the latter part of which included quite a few road scenes in California.
