You are probably asking if not all the movie is dubbed over American film into Japanese.

According to the United Cinema Sapporo Japanese page, about half of the movies are still with Japanese texts super-impaused over American original.


Check up this IMAX page in English also.


I dont know why there are discrepancies in these two pages.

Sorry, you many know well.

Yes there are. Usually with Hollywoods films you can choose between Japanese voice-over or English with Japanese subtitles. If you post when you plan to go, some one could check the schedule for you.

English language movies in Japan are shown in the original English 80% of the time, with subtitles - unless they are family or kids movies, in which case they are dubbed by Japanese actors.

When you look at a movie schedule look for this Chinese character: 字幕 or ask at the movie theater "ji-ma-ku???" - this means subtitled...and this is the version you need to see.
