English please?

This is a special page just for our international visitors! Here you can find out which films and documentaries in our cinema programme are in different languages or shown with English subtitles. And also which multilingual activities are organized at our library.

➤ Be sure to always double-check if the screening you want to attend is indeed in English or has English subtitles to avoid disappointment!

Every month, we show a one-time screening of a new or classic Italian spoken movie in our series Italiafilm.

Enjoy a delicious 3-course meal while watching a funny, romantic or exciting film on the big screen. Our cinemadiners are a very tasteful cinema experience!

Study spots and spaces

Our location at the Oude Boteringestraat has a variety of spaces useful for studying and doing research. There are a good number of study places, a free Wi-Fi network, tons of books and magazines to read and of course the Leescafé Belcampo coffeeshop for a quick coffee or a slow lunch.

Keen to study more?

At the Groninger Forum Acedemy we offer Dutch language courses for beginner and advanced levels. For those who already mastered the Dutch language, there are other courses to join, of course.
