Theatiner Film – Parlez-vous francais?

They do have the best cheese. And red wine. They’re famous for being elegantly yet effortless dressed. They’re cultivated in the high art of conversation. They had Edith Piaf, Honoré de Balzac and Claude Monet. To make a long story short: The French know how to celebrate every aspect of life being the inventors of savoir vivre. And they have the best movies and actors.

Since I’m a huge fan of French culture and especially French films, I love the fact that Munich has a francophone cinema. The Theatiner Film is hidden in a small passage behind Odeonsplatz, and even though it has been there since the late 50s, only a few people seem to know it. Their focus is on recent French movies, though from time to time they’ll show older movies too. And, bien sûr, all of their screenings are in the original version! Luckily for a non-native speaker like me, trying to improve rusted high school French, most of the films are subtitled – so no worries about missing the mumbling of a Belmondo or the play on words of Mlle Tautou.

To get things even more frenched up, I would highly recommend to sneak some macarons from Maelu in – as I have to pass their pastry shop to enter the Theatiner passage anyway, I can never resist to do so. Profitez bien des films!
