I'm affraid that this would be closed for "Distribution", but not sure. Given how dubbing simply degrades experience, I would find it very useful and this seems the best place to ask. Question:

""" Title: Do european non-UK cinemas that play Star Wars 3D undubbed exist?

Background: I failed to find a cinema that would screen SW:TPM 3D release in original language (one closer than the UK*) so I didn't attend.

Checked cineamas in Berlin, Vienna and Budapest, but I couldn't find a single cinema that offered an undubbed version. This seemed very strange to me - do such cinemas exist? Other movies are screened in original language, why not TPM?

The motivation is twofold, obviously by the time of what will be left of the original trilogy I could book a visit. (Actually I still would like to watch TPM, but cinemas won't even screen it any more in any language, afaik. :( )

But the other reason is that I find it very strange that it's this hard to find one for TPM and would like to know if they exist at all.

If not, was it explicitly probihited by the licensing, or all cinemas simply wasn't interested in doing it?

*: I live in Budapest and that would be obviously too far to go and watch TPM. :) """

  • Couldn't the OP just ask, where\what theaters in [Europe] can I watch movies in English?

I think it's a bad question for two reasons.

  1. It's too localized. You're looking for a list of specific places in the word in a somewhat specific region that are showing a specific title. You're not liley to get an answer and the question is unlikely to ever help anyone.
  2. It's too time sensitive (which I believe falls under too localized). A threatre that's showing a movie this week might not be showing it next week, or ever again.

This type of question just isn't a good fit for a Stack Exchange site.

  • That's true. However, it could be detached into two or more separate questions, 1) whether Lucasfilm has a policy for star wars 3D that prevents non-English cinemas running it in English. 2) Why European cinemas choose not to screen such a high volume film in it's original form (assuming it's not probihited to do so). And 3) If not probihited, are there non-English cinemas that generally tend to screen mainstream ('Hollywood/expensive') films in original language? So what about it like this?
