Cinema (in the spelling of the publisher CINEMA ) is a monthly German magazine on the subject of cinema. It described itself as "Europe's largest film magazine". The motto was later changed to “The most important things from the world of film”. Cinema first appeared in 1975. Philipp Schulze is the editor-in-chief .

Cinema was published by the Milchstrasse publishing group until it was taken over by Hubert Burda Media in 2005 . From a pure cinema magazine, the magazine has developed in recent years into a broadly diversified entertainment magazine. In addition to the still existing film reviews, star portraits, set reports and reports on upcoming films, there is also a lot on the subject of home cinema and video-on-demand. As a magazine for a wide audience, the paper is primarily dedicated to mainstream cinema.

Cinema has been awarding the Jupiter Audience Award since 1979 . Every year, the readers of the magazine are called upon to vote for their favorites from the past cinema year.

At the same time, the editorial team publishes regular special issues on series as well as two podcasts: The “Cinema Newsflash” provides information about new film and series projects from Hollywood. In “Cinema Shortcuts”, Cinema Editor-in-Chief Philipp Schulze and Lars Zeschke discuss the most important new releases from the fields of cinema, streaming and soundtracks twice a month.

On April 20, 2018, “SerienMagazin” was the first joint issue of Cinema and TV Spielfilm.


Cinema has lost a lot of its circulation in recent years . The number of copies sold has fallen by 88.2 percent since 1998. It is currently 24,465 copies. This corresponds to a decrease of 207,309 units. The share of subscriptions in the circulation sold is 73 percent.
