ORIGINAL LANGUAGE MOVIES IN THE RUHR
Original language movies are popular in the Ruhr Metropolis. Films available to expats are screened mostly in original with subtitles, known as OmU or Original mit Untertitel and without, portrayed as OV or Original Version in a number of movie theatres.
Several opportunities are available for film lovers to view OV and OmU movies and films in Duisburg, Dortmund, Essen, Gelsenkirchen, Hamm, Hagen, Oberhausen in the Ruhr region as well as Wuppertal. Run times may be short due to a limited number of original and subtitled copies in circulation. Traditionally smaller audiences too.
Some films produced in English are screened for several days and even a few weeks. Others unfortunately just for a day or two. Weekly updates of movie listings of theatres are in the table. Cinema details, contact information and links in the posts below. Please confirm details!
Having worked together with Filmkunstkinos and with support from Henkel to increase OmU availability in Düsseldorf years ago, this is dear to my heart. That said, due to focus on strategic areas of business, weekly listings published on Amazing Capitals have now ceased. Please refer to the cinemas directly using links in the individual posts below.

Socialising in the Ruhr
Staying in touch and getting together with others living in a similar situation can be important. Expat groups in social media are highly valuable sources for connecting. Socialising in the Ruhr Metropolis can include events, international clubs or heading for a popular spot to meet international residents.
