Look, we get it. You might be visiting a new and exciting place, with lots of stuff to see and do.

You'll also find info about upcoming festivals and special screenings in town.

Subtitles and Filmstaden

Sweden, like all the other Scandinavian countries, doesn't dub foreign film but uses subtitles instead. Some films though, like animation and movies aimed at a younger audience, might be dubbed depending on which screening you're going to.

The biggest movie theater-chain in Sweden is Filmstaden (page in Swedish), with multiple theaters in inner-city Stockholm as well as multiplexes in the surrounding areas.
