Atelier's Wall of Fame


Atelier am Bollwerk, usually called Atelier, is a small independent cinema in the centre of Stuttgart. It presents many films not shown at other cinemas, in particular documentaries and French films. The film advertised above, "Birnenkuchen mit Lavendel", is a French film with the original title "Le Goût des Merveilles", in English "The Sense of Wonder". That narrows down when the photo was taken, because it was released in Germany in March 2016.


At the counter there's a list of famous names from the film industry. Every time I've been to the cinema I've stared at this list in amazement. I recently managed to photograph the counter when it wasn't blocked by customers, and today I typed the 156 names. One of the names, "Monty Pythons" isn't a name, so there are only really 155 names.

I have a few questions for my readers:

1. How many of the names do you know already? (I scored 89, but I googled all the other names afterwards).

2. One of the names is included twice. Who is it? (It's easy to spot in the list, difficult at the counter).

3. Two of the names have nothing to do with the film industry. Who are they? (They're not mistakes. Both are included for a reason).
