The guests at the Admiralspalast in Berlin saw and heard the silent film classic "Berlin. Symphony of a Metropolis” on 29th October 2015. The experimental documentary of avant-garde filmmaker Walther Ruttmann documents the daily routine of the city of Berlin to the original music by Edmund Meisel. The newly orchestrated version by Bernd Thewes was set to music by the Berlin Radio Symphony Orchestra and its conductor Frank Strobel.
The conception and realization of the project was performed in cooperation with the European Filmphilharmonic Institute. BIG cinema convinced while installing and operating the technical set-up thanks to the years of experience in film concerts and the first-class product portfolio. In addition to the 8 x 6 meter projection screen and high-quality projection technology including a soundproof booth, also music stand lights for orchestral musicians were in action.
