Unlike many other cities, movies aren’t dubbed in Copenhagen but have subtitles; that means that cinephile travelers and expats can enjoy an evening at the cinema and luckily the capital of Denmark offers plenty of options for all tastes. Whether in search of an independent film or the city’s largest cinema, here are some of the theatres to check out.

With 17 auditorium and more than 2,000 seats, Palads Teatret offers plenty of choices for cinephiles in Copenhagen. The historic cinema, who opened its doors for the first time in 1918, is one of the oldest cinemas in the city and it now features modern audio and video equipment thanks to a renovation. Its pastel façade attracts visitors interest—and Instagrammers’ attention—and it makes it one of the most beautiful buildings in the city.
