Budapest Movie Theatres

You can get your Hollywood fix in Budapest, as the city's mainstream cinemas always have a vast selection of blockbusters playing. Although a host of multiplex cinemas has appeared, Budapest also has its own chain of "art cinemas" which specialize in the latest releases and obscure films from Eastern and Western Europe. If it's Hungarian film you are interested in, you will appreciate the Hungarian film scene. The best time to catch a Hungarian movie is during the three major film festivals in Budapest, the Hungarian Film Week, held in February, the Titanic International Filmfest, held in April and the Budapest International Film Festival, held in the fall.

Movies aren't the only thing you'll want to see in Budapest's theatres – the architecture of the theatres themselves is stunning. Check out the Moorish interior of the Uránia, a showcase for Hungarian film, or the coffered ceiling of the turn-of-the-20th-century Puskin.

Catching a flick in Budapest won't strain your vacation budget – tickets run from HUF 800 (US $4.50) in the smaller cinemas to around HUF 1800 (US $10) in the multiplexes. Consult the Budapest Sun for the best source of movie listings (www.budapestsun.com). Below, you'll find a selection of the most popular art cinemas and multiplexes in Budapest playing movies in English.
