The week November 13-20: original language movies with times and locations in cinemas across the Ruhr region in English: The Irishman, Ford v. Ferrari, Last Christmas, Giant Little Ones, Parasite, Zombieland: Double Tap, The Laundromat, Joker, The White Crow, Harald & Maude.

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.

Jaywalking ist Verboten!

Crossing a street in Germany to this day still reveals a discipline that is seldom experienced elsewhere. When the red light is showing at a pedestrian crossing, people mostly wait for a green one. Often for excruciatingly long periods on completely empty streets.

Surroundings

The urban zone appears to be a massive metropolis but is in fact polycentric. Thus, larger rural spaces actually interweave with towns offering a chance to breathe in the countryside. Natural beauty, agricultural landscapes and small towns and villages complete a rural experience.

Light Weeks in Essen

The Essen Light Weeks create a magical atmosphere through the city centre. Many motifs bring light into the darkest period of winter and magnificent bright displays hang above the heads of people strolling by. The Christmas Market runs parallel for several weeks from mid November until Yuletide.

One of the best Christmas markets in the Ruhr region of Germany is in Bochum. The medieval market square and the region’s only Flying Santa, artists who soar above the heads of kids and adults alike on a wonderful sleigh drawn by reindeer, are just two attractions.
