Most films are dubbed into German for local audiences but a few cinemas which screen original versions of the latest films.
The most distinguished is Cinema München, with one large viewing hall and an excellent sound system.

It gets quite busy on weekends so make a reservation online. You can also check the program on the website here cinema-muenchen.

Cinema München details: Location
It's at Nymphenburger Strasse 31 about 20min walk north of the Main Train Station (Hauptbahnhof). You could also take the U-bahn No .1 to Stiglmaier Platz and walk from there. Phone 089 55 52 55.

Lots of character

Another silver-screen institution is the Museum Lichtspiele which has four small cinemas, each with a different theme. It's cosy as hell and makes for a very original experience.

The Museum Lichtspiele

also holds the world record for screenings of the Rocky Horror Picture Show. Yep, it's been shown here every Saturday night for about 30 years.

Big screen big scale

Munich’s big cinema Multiplex is the Mathäser which you walk past on the way from the Main Train Station (Hauptbahnhof) to the Karlsplatz-Stachus square.
They usually show films dubbed into German but if you're keen on checking something out in the original language here watch out for letters OV, meaning "original version" next to the film title on the preview screens.
