Want to go to the movies?
Turm-Kinos (Tower-Cinemas) in the City-Center at Eschenheimer Tor shows undubbed movies. (Only English, I´m afraid)
The place is run down, but what the heck! It shows the new movies without subtitles, but how they were meant to be.
Underground lines U1, U2 and U3 stop directly underneath the cinema, it is one stop northbound from Hauptwache.
Mal Seh´n (Arthouse Cinema) in Adlerflychtstreet (take the tube U5 northbound to Musterschule, walk in the direction of the passing train up to Adlerflychtstreet (2 min.) on the left side. The cinema is the third house from the corner) shows movies from all over the world. Usally the stuff no other cinema touches. Very often with subtitles. So if you want to see a hip movie from - let´s say - Uganda, there is a possibility that they show one.

This cinema offers also: a nice little pub, friendly staff, reasonable prices
(One screen only !)

The Bible Museum - discover the Bible the fun way
If you want to learn about the Bible the fun way, you should try the Bible museum, which is tucked away behind the Art Museum (Museum für Angewandte Kunst). It is small and unfortunately all descriptions are in German, but you get to learn about the Bible and Ancient Israel the fun way, which is especially enjoyable for children, but also for adults. Your tour starts on a small gallery, above the actual exhibition room, and the first thing you will see is a nomad’s tent. ). The earliest Jews were nomads and the tent is often referred to in the Bible, for example in the stories about Abraham and Sarah. Visitors are invited to enter the tent (after taking off their shoes) and to look at the different pieces of furniture and other household items, including two stones for grinding corn. Next to the tent is the “table of scents”, where visitors can smell different plants and fruits as well as oils that are made from them.
After stepping down the rainbow staircase (in remembrance of the rainbow God sent to Noah after the flood) you will reach the main exhibition room. There are many interesting items to see and try out here, e.g. a large book press where children can typeset and print a page; a fish stamping machine, where visitors can cut out small fish, a Christian symbol, or just paper and crayons for anyone who likes to draw. A large ship dominates the room; it is a replica of a ship from the time of Jesus, which was found recently in Lake Genezareth. Visitors are welcome to step inside and look around. Last but not least, you will find further items of interest such as a real Torah scroll, several entertaining software programs, photos and bibles as well as a large organ.
