At Cinecenter, we screen all our films in their original language with subtitles. To accommodate members of our audience who appreciate foreign language films, but don’t read Dutch, we regularly screen these films with English subtitles in our Cine Expat program!


Cine Expat is a great event to visit, as not only do you get to see a fab film with English subtitles but there is always a nice mix of people – regulars and first time visitors – who gather before and after the screening to drink and to chat about films and life experiences.



Cine Expat normally gets an international audience. Although we have many regulars there is always someone new to meet. We even get a fairly big Dutch audience, whether it’s because they missed the film the first time ’round or they’re curious to mingle with other cultures I’m not sure. But anyway it’s a great mix of people!


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?
