The Holy Grail! Foreign Movies with English Subtitles!

Author:Author unknown, Issue: October 2003, Topic: Movies

The other day I went into Tokyo to see "Ciudade de deus", a Brazilian film (really cool, by the way!), and was very surprised that the film was side-titled in Japanese and subtitled in English! For all of those who like to see a bit of "world cinema" i.e. non-English films, I recommend the Virgin Cinemas in Roppongi Hills. The theatre is really nice -- THX even on the smallest screen! -- and they have screenings at 2 and 3am! (Cheaper than a love hotel or capsule...)

However, not ALL films are sub-titled in English, only the big ones like "Terminator 3" and "Hero", and not at all times of the day. The schedule is available online (http://www.virgincinemas.co.jp/roppongi) but it's only in Japanese, which means you need to know the film title in Japanese and need to know how to read "eigo jimaku" (English sub-titles) in Japanese. I suppose you can find some information on English sub-titling at metropolis.co.jp though.
