OV & OmU Films in DU, E, 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.

Opera in the Ruhr Metropolis

A rather special place to experience opera is in the Aalto Music Theater in Essen. The architectural style of the interior conjures up a timeless aura, complementing the unfolding of scenes on the stage. Other locations to enjoy opera include the towns of Dortmund, Duisburg and Hagen.

Events in Ruhr

Visitors to the Ruhr region can enjoy such open air activities as the funfairs, former industrial parks or cycling and hiking the beauty of the Ruhr valley. Or stay indoors to experience many of the music festivals and performances on offer including classical and jazz.

Zeche Zollverein

Zollverein is an enormous old mining complex in the north of Essen and is the most prominent example of the structural change in the whole Ruhr region. An impressive mix of historical design and industrial museums and leisure facilities await national and international visitors.
