#MoviesOmU: Movies in English and other original language versions in Leipzig, 30 September-October 7

in Culture / Entertainment/Leipzig/Movies

Here’s our regular listing of films being shown in English and other original foreign languages (with labels such as OmU, OF and OV) at Leipzig cinemas for this movie week. Although not dubbed, the movies often come with German subtitles, so you can still access the movie if you don’t know the original language but know some German. Remember that Wednesday, Sept. 30th, is your last chance to catch the second installment of the film festival Mythos Freiheit, which we highlighted last time. Below are the two remaining films:
