Trivia
The building used for the exteriors of the Metropol theater still stands in Berlin. It's a club called Goya that's been host to several horror conventions thanks to its appearance in this film.

Goofs
When the helicopter first crashes through the ceiling into the cinema, the casing around the base of the rotor blades is missing or broken off, but in the very next shot it is in place and intact.

When the girl is running from the masked man through the supposedly empty train station, two men are seen smoking behind a pillar.

Moviegoers find out that they can't leave the cinema - there is no way out. But when Metropol is shown from outdoors, we can see lightened rooms through the windows. Were characters too dumb to jump out from the windows or to take down using the rope?

Q
What is the Metropol?
A
The Metropol opened its doors on October 25, 1906, as both a theater and concert hall. In time, the theater section became redundant. Five years later, the building then functioned as a movie theater, the Lichtspiele Mozartsaal, and, during 1926, UFA took over its running. In 1930, a new look brought modifications and the look of Art Deco. By 1942, its name became Nollendorf Palast. In 1951, it became the Metropol, which, also, had known many names: Mozartsaal, Mozartsaal Cinema, Nollendorf Palast, and the Neue Scala. In the 1970s, disco was its outlet and club kids enjoyed what was then the most popular nightspot in West Berlin.
