Cinemas in The Hague

Going to a cinema ('bioscoop' in Dutch) to see a film is popular in The Hague. Generally, foreign films are not dubbed but are instead shown with Dutch subtitles. An exception to this are films aimed at younger viewers. Often, two versions of such films are programmed: a dubbed version in Dutch, and the original, with Dutch subtitles (look for the addition 'OV').

Filmhuis Den Haag

Filmhuis Den Haag is known as an international-friendly cinema. Filmhuis Den Haag shows new films from all over the world as well as (cult) classics; new ones every season.
