From small European gems like La Syndicaliste to major blockbusters like Everything Everywhere All At Once and retrospectives, we make an effort to bring you the very best of modern cinema with English subtitles. Furthermore, a lot of our specials are aimed specifically at non-Dutch speaking film lovers. If you’d like to receive regular updates on our English-language content, sign up for our newsletter here!

HAVE A DRINK AND A CHAT
Besides our weekly screenings with English subtitles, Cinecenter is also host to the monthly recurring event Aperitivo. We’ve teamed up with subscription service Cineville to bring you this film special every third Thursday of the month. Each time, we’ll present you with a choice of four films – established favorites and upcoming or new films alike – so you can vote for the one you’d most like to see. On the night itself, the hour leading up to the film is Happy Hour, where you’ll get a chance to hang out with likeminded film fans, catch up with friends (both new and old) and have a go at our wheel of fortune to win cool film prizes. Like any happy hour worth its salt, there’s also a discount on drinks: between 7.45PM and 8.45PM, your Cineville card gets you 4 drinks for €10 at our bar!
Our English-language screenings tend to attract a wide international audience. Although we get a lot of regulars, there is always someone new to meet – including plenty of Dutch audience members. Although we’ve adopted ‘Cine Expat’ as the general name for our English-language programming, we’re aware that actual expats are just a fraction of our wide international audience – all are welcome, indeed.
“I realized I was only watching Hollywood films here and craved seeing some more interesting arthouse movies. Even if you’re learning Dutch it’s tricky to keep up with Dutch subtitles so I thought how about a night where I select some recent foreign language films and screen them with English subtitles?”
Katie Crook, Host and Founder of Cine Expat
