The English Language Movie Society (ELMS) was founded in 2007 and is a group of students and staff that meet during the semester to watch movies in their original language. The lack of English-language cinemas in Essen inspired this club and it has since been well received.

We have also set up a Facebook page ("English Language Movie Society (ELMS)") to help interested students connect to each other and not just be another face in the crowd.

During the semester we meet every other Tuesday at 6 pm in room S05 T00 B83. Our schedule will be posted regularly throughout the fourth-floor hallways of R12 and here on our website. Admission is completely free and everyone is welcome to come.

If you have any questions, suggestions or just want to get more involved, please feel free to get in contact with Adam von Wald or Dietmar Meinel at
