Cinemas in Munich

Munich cinemas, as most German cinemas, usually screen films with dialogue overdubbed in German, which, once you get used to it, is bearable. Another plus is that you can improve you language skills. If you can’t imagine watching “The Hateful Eight” in German, in Munich there are also a lot of “Kino’s” showing films without overdubbing.

Cinema programs on the web and in newspapers and magazines are full of abbreviations, the most common are:

tgl – daily

OF - original version

OmU - original version with German subtitles

OoU – original version without German subtitles

Mo – Monday, Di – Tuesday, Mi – Wednesday, Do – Thursday, Fr – Friday, Sa – Saturday, So – Sunday.

Below is a list of cinemas in Munich listed alphabetically with their respective addresses. Cinemas regularly or mostly showing original versions (in English) are underlined.

Paul Bradbury

After 12 years living on the most gorgeous island in the world, Hvar in Dalmatia, I have begun to wonder if there is still life beyond its shores. Prior to discovering Paradise in 2002, I was a world traveller, living and working in Japan, Georgia, Somalia, Rwanda, Russia... and Munich.

After 95 countries and some 25 years have passed, the memories of my year in the hotel industry in the Bavarian capital (fired by the Sheraton for losing our pet snake, the first male chambermaid at Hotel Arabella, and a truly eye-watering introduction to five-star living in  my days as a bellboy in luxury Hotel Vier Jahreszeiten) are strong, and the call of Munich has been a constant theme over the last quarter century. 

And so here I am, answering the call some 25 years later. Twelve years of island living have changed me for sure, but also left me curious about life in a big city, and whether or not I could adapt to it after such an insular decade. 

I was surprised to see that for such a magnificent multi-cultural city, English-language blogs and regularly updated information are not that available. Static tourism information, such as that provided by the excellent tourist board website yes, but accounts of daily life delivered daily? Hard to find.

And so I have decided to take a break from my idyllic island and see if I could live in a city again. And what better way to try than to discover modern Munich in all its facets after so many years. It is a journey of discovery which I am relishing, and I hope the site proves to be of interest for Munich residents and its numerous visitors.
