Filmhuis Cavia

Filmhuis Cavia

Short url:

Filmhuis Cavia is a counterculture cinema, (legally) founded by a squatters movement in 1983, which programs films you aren't likely to see anywhere else. It is run entirely by volunteers and our programmers work hard to find you brilliant movies and documentaries, particularly by female directors, from outside of the West or 35mm. Our cozy cinema has just 40 chairs, but our bar is fun and our prices are friendly so don't be shy about checking us out!

opening times: 

We're open a couple of days in the week. Look us up to find our monthly program.
Doors always open half an hour before the film starts.
