There is only one movie theatre in Monaco, and this is apparently not the most dynamically developed business in the Principality. The movie halls are full only on the most popular days such as when they are showing the latest James Bond in the original language, the tickets are colorful pieces of paper without indication of seats, and you can pay only by cash… Anyway, all other attributes of the cinema life, like popcorn, ice cream, the three halls with various number of places, and the 3D option, are at your disposal. As of September 2014, once the demolition of the Sporting d’Hiver begins, the cinema hall will be moved to a new location at the theatre Princesse-Grace in Monte-Carlo.
As a rule, the movies are in French, but you can almost always find one or two which are in the original language, which is mostly English with French subtitles. The cartoons for kids are always in French.

Ticket Price: 10,50 euro for adults; 7,50 euro for children (+2,50 euro for a 3D session)

Every summer, from the end of June till the beginning of September, they have Open Air Cinema in Monaco. It is a summer movie theatre under the open sky. Every night you can see movies in the language of the original with French subtitles here. There is only one movie per night, and they begin at 10:00 PM in June – July, and at 9:40 PM in August – September. The theatre itself is open one hour before the movies begin, so you can arrive earlier, stock up with popcorn, and enjoy the commercials and the sounds of the seagulls above your heads. Make sure to take a blanket with you as the night next to the sea may be chilly.
