The railway station of Kassel is a place that many people pass by, but it is also the Kulturbahnhof; a location to spend time at with bars, the Caricatura and also a cinema. When you pass through the main hall of the railway station you’ll see the entrance to the BALi, which is the abbreviation for Bahnhofslichtspiele. I came here for a show of three editors-in-chief of the famous German satirical newspaper Titanic: Oliver Maria Schmitt, Thomas Gsella and Martin Sonneborn.
The call themselves the Titanic BoyGroup and an evening with them is always entertaining. The BALi has a long history and dates back to the November 1st, 1895. It consists of two cinemas, the small and the large BALi and today not the main blockbusters are on display but arthouse movies. Other small cinemas at Kassel are the Gloria at the Ständeplatz (near the city center) and the Filmladen at the city quarter Vorderer Westen.
