Multiscreen cinema complexes are springing up all over the city, usually linked to major malls. Foreign films are subtitled in Arabic and usually start 30 minutes after the scheduled time (arriving 15 minutes after that time is usually fine). All theaters have reserved seating. Also note that most embassies have cultural centers that show original-language (and uncensored) movies—these are well worth looking into if you're in the mood to see a film.
