The Iranian film industry has greatly evolved in recent years, and Iranian films are now making numerous appearances on the international scene. Paired with the construction of modern theatres in the capital city Tehran, the movie-going experience has become more exciting than ever. Here is our list of the best cinemas in Tehran.
Occupying the top four floors of Kourosh Complex, this cineplex is not only Iran’s biggest, it’s also considered to be the most modern. With names like Rex, Crystal, and Metropol, each of its 14 theatre halls is named after one of the old cinemas that once crowded the famed Lalezar Street, the first modern boulevard in Tehran known for its thriving cultural scene. Alongside Iranian movies, original language foreign films with Persian subtitles are also screened in Kourosh Cineplex, although club membership is needed.
