Filmowa stolica 2017 for Foreigners

 Filmowa Stolica 2017 for Foreigners

In a previous post, we listed all the open air Cinema in English in Warsaw happening in bars all around the city. At the time of writing, however, there was no information about the Filmowa Stolica, so we didn’t include it in the post.

Filmowa Stolica’s program (Filmowa Stolica means “Movie Capital”) is finally out, but 100% in Polish. As always, we have your interests in mind and we translated the whole thing for you. 

We decided to divide this post into districts (in alphabetical order) because almost every district in Warsaw has one or more open air cinemas. Check out the locations on this google map.

The movies screened at the festival are mainly international movies. Every movie will be screened in original language with Polish subtitles (unless it’s a Polish movie, in which case there won’t be any subs).

In this post, we are listing all movies with the original title, an indication of the languages spoken in the movie and a brief synopsis.

With the regard to the languages, you will see this kind of indication right under the title:

.

This can either mean that the movie is half English/half French, or that it’s predominantly in English with just a sentence in French. Or any variation in between. Unfortunately, we were not able to provide you with more accurate info.

PS: thank you Filmowa Stolica for the amazing outdoor movie season!! You are contributing to making Warsaw awesome.

PPS: all the images were taken from Filmowa Stolica FB profile.

Warsaw is awesome, but a lot of the content online is in Polish.

At OddUrbanThings we strive to make your life easier and more exciting.
