For those of us movie-aholics or for anyone who simply has a hankering for some buttered popcorn and a chance to see Johnny Depp on the screen, don’t despair that you won’t be able to get your fix while in Paris. The French love, or should I emphasize–LOVE, movies. You will be hard-pressed to find a theater that is not almost entirely full at most times of the day. Thankfully, many theaters host American and other English speaking films in our native tongue with French sub-titles. Hallelujah!
The trick is to look for English speaking films that say V.O. or version originale (original version) on the listing. Pay attention to the V.O. times too, because some theaters will show the film in English for a week or two and then put up the dubbed version. Others, play the dubbed version during the day, so that French children can understand what is going on. But rest assured somewhere at some point in the day, you will be able to see the movie of your choice in English.
