Original language films: Duisburg, Dortmund, Essen, Gelsenkirchen, Hagen, Oberhausen

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.
