Unmissable English Language Cinema Screenings In Copenhagen This Weekend

Time to drink too much cola and eat too much popcorn.

With cinemas re-opening to the public today, we couldn’t be more excited to get out there and start crunching popcorn once again in front of a massive cinema screen. Loads of fantastic films have been released this year, and although sitting in our sofas watching them on the TV or on our laptops makes for some fantastic downtime, it’s just not the same – there isn’t the same amazing atmosphere.

Most international films are shown in the original language, in Copenhagen, but subtitled in Danish. Additionally, films in Danish or another language excluding English are sometimes shown with English subtitles for specific screenings. So, it’s not difficult to catch a film in English here.

Please remember that you must provide a negative Covid-19 test result to get into any of these screenings.

Minari is a grounded, profound, and detailed look at a Korean family’s attempt at assimilation and chasing the American dream in 1980s America. Led by striking performances from Steven Yeun and Yeri Han, Minari is a classic immigrant tale that stands out because of its detailed screenplay and atmospheric nature. With six Oscar nominations and one win, this is one you shouldn’t miss. This is the only screening of the film subtitled in English at this specific cinema. You can book tickets here.

Promising Young Woman is not just another feminist revenge thriller, it’s a clever mix of comedy tropes meeting the serious and complex narratives of the #MeToo movement. Helmed by writer-director Emerald Fennell, the film stars Carey Mulligan as Cassie, a confident and smart woman who leads a secret double life by night. The movie is bold and infectious, just like its protagonist and makes a loud, important statement. You can buy tickets here.
