About 100 people took part in a rally in the area of the Berlinale Film Festival in Berlin and in front of the Cinemaxx cinema at Potsdamer Platz.
They demanded higher wages for employees of the cinemas and pointed out the poor pay, which is only slightly above the minimum wage.

The background was the current wage conflict in the cinema industry. The trade union Verdi also feared that in the event of warning strikes in Cinemaxx Kinos, strike breakers could be used - with the knowledge and tolerance of the Berlinale management. Cinemaxx is one of the festival cinemas.
