Stage & Screen in Düsseldorf

Movies, films and performances

Written by Garry and last edited by Garry on

 

German society invests heavily in the creative arts nationally and locally here in Düssseldorf. The importance of cultural institutions results in national, state and local funding of a relatively high standard with surprisingly broad divergence. Fascinating venues can be found for modern dance performances, classical music, opera, variety and jazz.

The opportunity for cinemagoers to see original language movies is provided by two cinema operators screening films in English and a few other languages.
