Filmhuis Den Haag
Filmhuis Den Haag
Filmhuis Den Haag is a lively cultural meeting place that aims to bring people and cultures together through a shared love for film. Our movie theatre, café and restaurant open 364 days a year for breakfast, lunch or dinner, inspiring debates and conversations, the opportunity to work or to meet. And of course what it's all about: the best films, all day long, on a big screen. With five cinema halls, four studios, a café and a restaurant Filmhuis Den Haag welcomes more than 185.000 visitors a year.
Our programme this summer
Additionally to our Dutch programme, we have a lot to offer to non-Dutch speakers. A substantial part of the programme contains both English subtitled and/or spoken movies.
Our main intention is to present the latest films from all over the world on a daily basis. But we also offer programmes like Classics and Cult Classics with a new selection of legendary (cult)movies every season and special screenings with Q&A’s afterwards (f.e. the monthly Movies that Matter on Tour, Movies that Matter Festival in March, Eastern Neigbours Film Festival in November and Arts in Cinema).
This summer you can also expect a variety of quality films from all over the world at Filmhuis Den Haag.
For example The Green Fog (English spoken) which is a playful interpretation of Alfred Hitchcock’s Vertigo, pieced together by director Guy Maddin using footage from old films and television shows shot in and around the San Fransisco area. Or the Polish horror Wilkolak (English subtitles) about a group of children liberated from a Nazi concentration camp that have to overcome hunger, thirst and vicious dogs in an abandoned mansion surrounded by a forest.
Our programme coming Fall
From September we’ll be premiering films such as In Fabric (English spoken): a haunting ghost story set against the backdrop of a busy winter sales period in a department store that follows the life of a cursed dress as it passes from person to person, with devastating consequences. Or Miles Davis: Birth of the Cool (English spoken) about the famous horn player, bandleader and innovator. The central theme of his life and of the film is Davis’ restless determination to break boundaries and live life on his own terms.
