Focus Expat Cinema; every Wednesday foreign language movies with English subtitles!

You might have been in Focus Filmtheater before, watching an English spoken movie or even a movie without any dialogues at all. But we are aware that you might miss a lot: so many wonderful movies are made by talented directors from all over the world, spoken in many different languages. Rather frustrating isn’t it.

In this Focus Expat cinema project we collaborate with Arnhem Together.
