Film screenings for school classes

Goethe-Institut London Cinema


our cinema is currently closed

Due to COVID-19 restrictions the Goethe-Institut London is currently unable to welcome school groups for film screenings. In the meantime, why not check out our Onleihe, the Goethe-Institut’s digital library where you can watch German films for free!

Once restrictions are lifted - no earlier than 17th May 2021

​According to the government roadmap out of lockdown, cinemas in England will be able to reopen no earlier than 17th May 2021. Once restrictions are lifted, we look forward to welcoming back German classes of all year levels to visit the Goethe-Institut London to enjoy a film in our cinema. Social distancing measures will be in place and there will be a maximum of 20 people allowed in our cinema. 

Bring your pupils to a fairy tale screening and let them immerse themselves in the world of fairy tales full of brave heroes, beautiful princesses and mean stepmothers! Or bring them to watch one of our other fantastic movies:
