Cinemas in Copenhagen

Copenhagen has plenty of cinemas, from small independent arthouse theaters to large multiscreens, both downtown and in the neighborhood. The best thing about Copenhagen's film scene, however, is that-with the exception of films for small children-all movies are shown in the original English language with subtitles, meaning you can enjoy that Hollywood blockbuster with the stars' voices intact.

Our top pick is The Grand: This centrally-located, independent cinema dates from 1913 and offers a good range of Hollywood hits and more obscure European films on its six screens. The atmosphere is friendly and there is a pleasant bar in the foyer. Other good independent movie theaters offering a wide-ranging program include downtown Dagmar and the suburban Empire and Park bios in Nørrebro and Østerbro respectively, both of which have retained a loyal local customer base.

Lovers of arthouse theaters and world cinema will no doubt adore Cinemateket, the screen of the Danish Film Institute, as well as the tiny Gloria cinema on Rådhuspladsen. Even more tucked away is Vester Vov Vov, a popular haunt for local cineastes.

Denmark's largest cinema chain, Nordisk Film, own the lavish Imperial Theater, with its expensive, luxury seats (and where all the big premieres are held), as well as the 17-screen Palads on Axeltorv Square.
