The good thing about Belgrade cinemas is that you can watch movies that are not synchronized, but have subtitles. Although era of DVD players and free downloads literally destroyed the most of cinemas, Belgrade still has a decent number of cinemas that fulfill modern standards. Also, Belgrade hosts a decent number of very good film festivals, such as: Free Zone Film Festival, International Film Festival known as “FEST”, Festival of Independent Films, Belgrade Documentary and Short Film Festival, Queer Film Festival known as “Merlinka” and many others.
Tuckwood is one of my favorite cinemas in Belgrade. It’s cozy and the sound is good. Here you can watch popular blockbusters and movies in 3D.
