The building has been a listed building since 1983. After it went into the hand of a new owner in December 2005, the cinema was closed in March 2006. The building should be converted according to the first plans for "large -scale trade use". After the first renovation plans of the new owner had been rejected by the City Council of Bonn, Mayor Bärbel Dieckmann campaigned for modified conversion plans in May 2007, but implementation was stopped in the autumn of the same year. From September 2007 to May 2008, a citizens 'initiative collected more than 16,000 signatures in the context of a citizens' request that aimed to maintain the monument and its further use as a place of culture. In May 2008, the city administration presented the responsible committees of the Council to a resolution to reject the latest renovation plans of the new owners and referred them to the possibility of selling the building to a user who provides for cultural use while maintaining the monument. On August 26, 2008, the Higher Administrative Court of Münster (OVG) decided that only the facade of the building had a monument property. The court did not allow a revision. The city appealed to the non -approval of the revision. This was rejected; The OVG decision is therefore final. The conversion to a bookstore began in 2009 and was completed in autumn 2010.
