Cinema in Israel

I like cinema and go often to the movies. I was wondering if Israeli films are screened with English subtitles? Are foreign films all dubbed in Hebrew? Are there still small cinemas or just big ones in shopping malls?

All films are shown in the original language with Hebrew subtitles. Films made in Hebrew may or may not have English subtitles. The only exception to that is films for children, which are shown in two versions: Hebrew dubbing (because young children can't read subtitles, obviously), and original language with subtitles. If you want to watch a kids' film make sure you go to the original language version.

There are very few small independent cinemas these days.

All foreign films have Hebrew subtitles (but children's movies are dubbed). Israeli films usually have English subtitles but not always. You have to ask the cinema. Almost all cinemas are now in suburban malls. There are only two left in the centre of Tel-Aviv : "Lev" in Dizengoff Center and "Rav Hen" in Dizengoff Circle. Both of them have six screens. Movies are also shown at the Tel-Aviv Museum, the ZOA House on Ibn Gvirol and at the Cinemateque on Carlebach St.

The ZOA House on Ibn Gvirol has no films anymore.

I suggest you ask again before your trip so we can check for you what is on and where. I am also a great fan of movies.
