Riga September 1944 cinema schedule


In the Occupied Eastern Territories between the start of 1942 and late 1944, the ZFO (Zentralfilmgesellschaft Ost), through its motion picture distribution network, provided hundreds of German feature films subtitled in the Baltic and Ukrainian and Russian languages, as well as Ostland Filmwoche newsreels narrated in those local languages.

In the Latvian capital, Riga, there are more than a dozen cinemas offering German feature films daily, seven days a week. As this rare original poster shows, it was possible to see 15 different German films on the same day of the week in cinemas scattered across greater Riga -- an amazing wartime cultural program right up until the Wehrmacht's retreat and the re–occupation of the city and country by the hated Red Army in October 1944.

On 13 October 1944 Riga was captured by the Red Army. This film poster advertised films in Riga less than three weeks before the Red Army arrived! What a piece of history!


This poster is 74 x 96 cm in dimension, roughly DIN A1.
