Ufa-Palast am Zoo, Hardenbergstr. 29a–e (Berlin-Charlottenburg). The first sound films in Berlin were shown at the end of the 1920s. On the façade of the Ufa-Palast am Zoo an announcement for the premiere of Fritz Lang’s silent film ‘Frau im Mond’ (1929) competed with advertising for the musical ‘The Singing Fool’ (USA, 1928, directed by Lloyd Bacon), which contained some synchronized musical and talking sequences.
