Hochschulkino is a German word for a cinema club in the university. Our Hochschulkino is called “Flimstudio”. They organize a big screening in the Aula of the main building every Tuesday and every Wednsday and they have special events at certain dates of the year. The most popular event is “Feuerzangenbowle” .
They show popular movies about half a year after they were shown in usual cinemas for a much cheaper price (3€) and you are even allowed to bring your own food and drinks.
You can read their entire program on their website.
Many of the movies are shown in original language (usually English).
The usual entrance fee is 3€, but special events are more expensive. On an average Tuesday or Wednesday you will have no problems to get a ticket at the evening box office in the cellar of the main building, but you can also buy the tickets up to 7 days earlier in their office Kármánstraße 7.
