In the heart of the city between the historic and modern urban core lies for almost 35 years the largest event hall in Brandenburg. Reconstructed and modernized in 2001, the Great Hall offers space for up to 2,000 people and provides the most modern equipment and acoustics. Every year more than 200,000 visitors enjoy different events from concerts to musicals.
Each November you can tell by the blue festival letters in front of the main entrance that an international week of East European cinema is about to begin: Not only that the Stadthalle is turning into a festival venue – it also becomes the centre of the East European FilmFestival.Here visitors will find the management, the guest service, the press office and the information desk. Also one can find the ticket counter of the CottbusService.
Traditionally the closing event with the awards ceremony and film show takes place in the Stadthalle.
