Twice a month you can discover a Danish classic or new release with English subtitles.

We’ve featured Copenhagen’s Cinemateket before when they did a David Bowie retrospective to commemorate his passing, however, today we’re presenting an initiative they’re running which is more suited to a lazy autumn Sunday (sorry to break it to you but summer’s coming to an end…) when you want to do something cultural but also can’t be bothered to travel: the cinema's a five minute walk from Generator Copenhagen.

Twice a month the Cinemateket presents “Danish On A Sunday”, when they screen “Danish film hits or classics" for their "non-Danish speaking audience” – the films are subtitled in English. It’s also an excuse for eating a Danish pastry: they do a special offer of coffee and a Danish for about €5 at the SULT restaurant which you’ll find in the building. 

From the poetic meditations of Carl Theodor Dreyer to the scandalising films of Dogme 95, Danish cinema has always known how to provoke and move audiences. Looking at the upcoming “Danish On A Sunday” programme, we recommend Nicolas Winding Refn’s Pusher on Sunday 23 October at 14.15. Before he directed Ryan Gosling in Drive, the Danish director was best known for his Pusher trilogy – a fast-paced, blood-soaked tale of gangsterism in the mean streets of Copenhagen (believe or not, they exist) featuring a young Mads Mikkelsen. Check out the trailer above. 

Tickets for “Danish On A Sunday” cost 70 DKK (45 conc.) and are available at the box office or online. Cinemateket is a five minute walk from Generator Copenhagen.
