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.

Sansibar by Breuninger

The Sansibar by Breuninger restaurant is on the first floor of the Breuninger emporium located in the Kö-Bogen. Enticing its patrons to linger and enjoy, healthy oysters and fresh fish, famous currywurst, tasty vegan, succulant burgers or delightful salads, soups and desserts await discovery.

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.
