About us

Volunteers run this non-average arthouse cinema theatre, which cherishes the jewels of international cinema: visually expressive, pure cinema that inspires and touches people.

This smallest arthouse cinema theatre in Nijmegen distinguishes itself from other film theaters by its personal approach, commitment, intimacy and passion for cinema. The cinema theater is an initiative of people with real love for cinema.

On the two screens of the cinema theater there are four of five screenings per screen for young and old. FilmhuisO42 has a distinctive film offering of art-house films, world cinema, social film, regional talent, small festivals and classics. FilmhuisO42 is an exclusive premiere theater of a number of film distributors with award-winning films from renowned festivals such as Cannes, Venice and Berlin.

Filmhuis O42 is a proud member of Europa Cinemas, the partnership between art house film theatres in 44 countries.
