Budapest Cinemas

Cinemas, Multiplexes and Art Cinemas

In Budapest cinemas foreign language films are subtitled (feliratos in Hungarian), so tourists can enjoy the latest blockbusters with the original soundtrack.

Films arrive in Budapest cinemas early, sometimes before Western European cities.

Some very popular films are dubbed (szinkronizált) so it’s always good to check in Exit or in Pesti Est free magazines whether the film you want to watch is subtitled before you buy the ticket.

A handful of modern multiplexes with Dolby sound system and wide screens attract Hollywood movie lovers.

Budapest caters for art film fans too with a good variety of art cinemas that usually also have a great cafe or bar (Kino) and host festivals, concerts and other cool programs.

Tickets to Budapest Cinemas

Advanced booking is available at every place.

Most Budapest cinemas have websites where you can book your ticket online and collect your ticket at the cinema’s cashier desk at least half an hour before the movie starts.

Tickets prices vary between 750-1 500 HUF depending on which day and which part of the day (morning/afternoon/evening) you want to go.

Finding your seat: the number of your seat (szék), the row (sor) and the side of the theatre (bal=left, jobb= right) you’ll be sitting are indicated. If few people want to watch the film, you can seat closer or farther from the screen or where you see a free seat.

Don’t forget to get a bucket of popcorn, and coke or other snacks at the buffet.

Art Cinemas in Budapest – Movie Theatres with Laid-Back Atmosphere

Budapest has some lovely art cinemas with colourful art movie offer. Hungarian film production has started to resurrect in recent years and more and more young directors produce films that fill up the movie theatres.

The most significant film festival Magyar Filmszemle introduces new films every February. Art Cinemas also function as meeting places since most have cafe/bar with cozy, often retro atmosphere.

The Toldi Cinema‘s lobby is called Toldi Club which is a cafe during the day and when the last movie ends it turns into a party place often with live music.
