Mal Sehn Frankfurt – My cinema

Cinema

"Mal Sehn" Frankfurt is an institution of a cinema for all arthouse film lovers. It's just like it used to be before the rise of megasuperduperplexes.

Kino Mal Sehn is for all cinephiles arthouse-movie-lovers. The cinema is like it used to be before the advent of Megasuperduperplexes with gigantic screens and perfect sound. Small, coupled with a cozy little restaurant-bar, "Filmriss", a clever play with words, meaning either film tear or black out. Almost an institution in Frankfurt (since 1984), the first arthouse cinema in town. It also houses various film festivals or special events with international topics.

I often go there during wintertime. The homey restaurant is always a good choice also and the cinema provides always the best arthouse movies in town.

Movies come from all around the world – and in their original language (OmU) -- something rare for all-dubbing Germany. The subtitles are mostly in English or German. 70 available seats, affordable prices (beer €2, wine € 2.80, Movie Ticket €8), a homelike interior and excellent movies from around the globe: an absolute must!

The Sunday morning mattinee is another highlight and always a good hideout if the weather is too bad.

Conveniently located in the Nordend subway (U5) station “Musterschule”, just 1 stop from the city center.
