Hi,

The only cinema that I know is just off the Cours Mirabeau, on Rue Larouqe. The cinema is called Cinema Mazarin. I'd be surprised if they have showings in English.

You may have to travel further afield I'm afraid.

Allocine and other sites carry cinema listings for many, if not most towns in France.

What you need to look for are theatres listing the films you want to see in VO rather than VF. You'll have to put up with French subtitles, but it's the best you can do here.

Outside of Paris, you may want to look for small town movie theaters, which tend to go for the VO versions. Where I live (in the Paris area) there are a couple of very small theaters that generally show the VO versions, but that only run any given film for a couple of days. If you have a cinema like this, you need to get onto their mailing list so you don't miss the relatively short runs for popular films.
Cheers,
Bev

Thanks Bev,

That link was really useful. I never knew what "VO" & "VF" stood for untiol now.

As per KiteKid's request they can find the film showing in Le Renoir: Salles de cinéma à Aix-en-Provence (13100) - AlloCiné

Have fun.

Regards,

There are three cinema's in Aix; The Renoir, The Mazarin and The Cezanne. For VO movies, the only one that shows them consistently is the Renoir. I've found that there are usually just one (maybe two) movies available in english, so you can't really "pick" the movie. It picks you.
