A bit of context, sourced from Wikipedia, but backed up by these two sources.

“During and after its German premiere in Berlin on 4 December 1930, Nazi brownshirts under the command of Joseph Goebbels disrupted the viewings by setting off stink bombs, throwing sneezing powder in the air and releasing white mice in the theaters, eventually escalating to attacking audience members perceived to be Jewish and forcing projectors to shut down. They repeatedly yelled out “Judenfilm!” (“Jewish film!”) while doing this. Goebbels wrote about one such disruption in his personal diary.”

A week later on the 11th, it was outlawed.
