With its special program of movie screenings, the Münchner Filmmuseum has become a popular haunt for cinema aficionados. The program, which changes on a daily basis, features comprehensive retrospectives, selected premieres, and theme-related film series. All of the films are screened in their original format and language (with subtitles available in English or German). Silent movies are frequently shown with live musical accompaniment. And filmmakers often guest at podium discussions following the showings.
The red film schedules – which provide full details of the programs – are published every six months and distributed in the foyer. Anyone subscribing to the Filmmuseum's newsletter will be e-mailed updates and details of the open-scene events on Thursdays that are frequently arranged at short notice.
