The cinema is part of the theater complex and was opened together with the City Theater in 1979. After the merger of various small cinemas and the change of name to kult.kino atelier, three new auditoriums were added in 2003. 10 years after the first expansion, the kult.kino atelier decided to adapt to the trends and take the next step. Additional cinemas should help to expand the program offer in the future. Furthermore a bar and a lounge in the extension of the Theaterpassage are part of the new concept. Together with Immobilien Basel-Stadt and the Department of Construction and Transportation, kult.kino AG has started the planning. A first project did not come to further processing. The extension project presented by the planning team ARGE GP Gruner/Hartmann included two new movie theaters with about 100 seats each. kult.kino AG was responsible for the design of the furnishings and the selection of the operating equipment. In the course of the realization of the new auditoriums, fire protection and ventilation in the existing auditoriums were also adapted to the valid standards.
