Wuppertal Location

Showcase your startup

In the Rex Theater in Wuppertal

In the Rex Theater, startups present their ideas in front of the big screen. The greatest films have been premiering here since 1887. It’s no surprise that it now also serves as the venue for the startup scene’s first broadcast.

You’ll find the Rex Theater in the historic theater building in the city center at Kipdorf 29 in Wuppertal. With the movie theater’s acoustics, your audience will hear your ideas in surround sound. Afterwards, you’ll have plenty of space to socialize with everyone—and enjoy a bag of popcorn or two.
