Spandau Studios

The Spandau Studios or CCC Studios were film and television studios located in Spandau a suburb of Berlin. They were established in 1949 following the Second World War by the producer Artur Brauner controller of CCC Films, on the site of a former factory.[1] Following the Soviet occupation of East Germany, most of the major film studios in the capital had fallen into the East Berlin with the exception of the Tempelhof Studios until Brauner opened his own studios.

Brauner produced a number of popular genre films over the following decades, including several remakes of Weimar era hits. Space was also rented out to other firms, and the 1960s saw the series of Edgar Wallace films made at Spandau by Rialto Film.
