OV & OmU Films in DU, E, DO, GE, HA, OB, Ruhr

A few opportunities are available for film lovers in Duisburg, Dortmund, Essen, Gelsenkirchen, Hagen and Oberhausen in the Ruhr region to view OV and OmU movies and films. Run times may be short because of the more limited number of original and subtitled copies in circulation. And smaller audiences.

Foreigners, expats should watch out for abbreviations such as OV, original version or OmU, original with subtitles (Original mit Untertiteln) and sometimes with the language of the subtitle declared OmdtU, original with German subtitles (Original mit deutsche Untertiteln). The logic and style of listings vary greatly among these dedicated creative types that run their cinemas and movie theaters (theatres).

Please confirm dates, times and locations of screenings with the cinemas before going to avoid any possible disappointment.

International School Ruhr

The International School Ruhr in Essen offers an exciting new environment for educating international children from countries across the globe. For many expat and German executives, the availability of a school geared towards international requirements is essential when choosing a base to live and to work.

Museums in Ruhr

Diverse and industrialised; two characteristics of the Ruhr region are brought together in the local landscape of museums. Many institutions focus on a specific industry such as beer or mining. Reflected throughout are aspects of the development and decentralised structure of the region.

The Ruhr region offers a fine example of the phenomenon of strong investment in the arts. Numerous impressive collections can be found as well as inspiring periodic exhibitions. A fascinating variety of art venues can be found in many downtown locations across the Ruhr.
