Seating Arrangements

Movie seats for the Münchner Filmmuseum

The 165 seats at the Münchner Filmmuseum need replacing. Over a period of more than 20 years—700 movies shown each year, that is, approximately two screenings a day—some 50,000 moviegoers have worn down these springy supporters. Friends of the Münchner Filmmuseum, Germany’s first community-owned movie theater, have organized a fund-raising project for the new chairs, from which viewers can continue to enjoy learning about film history and taking in innovative art films. A generous donation of DM 2,000 will cover the cost of one new seat, which will bear a personalized nameplate in honor of the donor. Larger gifts will finance urgently needed digital film equipment. Donations can be made by bank transfer: Dresdner Bank; BLZ: 700 800 00, account no. 3 810 598 00; subject: Stuhlaktion; or send a check to: Münchner Filmzentrum e.V., c/o Filmmuseum im Stadtmuseum, St.-Jakobs-Platz 1, 80331 München.
