Movies screening in English this July in Budapest

If you don’t speak Hungarian but want to visit the cinema in Budapest, it can be difficult to find out which films are showing in English (or another foreign language). Luckily, there are many cinemas and film clubs screening newly released films and classic flicks with English subtitles and/or with the original audio. Each month we share some movies to check out with links to the show times too, so you’ll know exactly which cinema to head to. All you need to do is grab some popcorn!


A Bigger Splash

Rock legend Marianne Lane (Tilda Swinton) is recuperating on the volcanic island of Pantelleria with her partner Paul (Matthias Schoenaerts), when iconoclastic record producer and old flame Harry (Ralph Fiennes) unexpectedly arrives with his daughter Penelope (Dakota Johnson) and interrupts their holiday, bringing with him an A-bomb blast of nostalgia from which there can be no rescue. This loose remake of Jacques Deray’s La Piscine by Luca Guadagnino (I Am Love) is a sensuous portrait of desire, jealousy, and rock and roll under the Mediterranean sun.

Now You See Me 2

The Four Horsemen (Jesse Eisenberg, Woody Harrelson, Dave Franco, and Lizzy Caplan) return for a second mind-bending adventure, elevating the limits of stage illusion to new heights and taking them around the globe. One year after outwitting the FBI and winning the public’s adulation with their Robin Hood-style magic spectacles, the illusionists resurface for a comeback performance in hopes of exposing the unethical practices of a tech magnate. The man behind their vanishing act is none other than Walter Mabry (Daniel Radcliffe), a tech prodigy who threatens the Horsemen into pulling off their most impossible heist yet. Their only hope is to perform one last unprecedented stunt to clear their names and reveal the mastermind behind it all. Will they succeed?

Where to watch:

The Neon Demon

Nicolas Winding Refn’s latest and best, The Neon Demon, is the culmination of his decades-long fascination with human nature in its darkest, most destructive form. It is a gorgeous, grisly work which holds a mirror up to modern society’s corroded moral core. The story centers around Jesse (Elle Fanning), an aspiring model who moves to Los Angeles, but soon her youth and vitality are devoured by a group of beauty-obsessed women who will take any means necessary to get what she has. A horrific mix of Dario Argento, David Lynch, and Stanley Kubrick, The Neon Demon is one of the most unique films of the season.

Where to watch:
Original (English) audio, Hungarian subtitles at Allee, Aréna, WestEnd, MOM Park and Mammut. For screening times, go Cinema City’s homepage or Port.



Limitless is an action-thriller about a writer who takes an experimental drug that allows him to use 100 percent of his mind. As one man evolves into the perfect version of himself, forces more corrupt than he can imagine mark him for assassination. After the out-of-work writer Eddie Morra (Bradley Cooper) is rejected by girlfriend Lindy (Abbie Cornish), he believes that he has zero future. That all vanishes the day an old friend introduces Eddie to NZT, a designer pharmaceutical that makes him laser-focused and more confident than any man alive. On his NZT-fueled odyssey, everything Eddie’s read, heard, or seen is instantly apparent and available to him. As the former nobody rises to the top of the financial world, he draws the attention of business mogul Carl Van Loon (De Niro), who sees this enhanced version of Eddie as a tool to make billions... but NZT’s brutal side effects jeopardize his meteoric ascent.

Moonrise Kingdom

The coming-of-age film Moonrise Kingdom is an ode to young lovers by the patriarch of elegant quirk, Wes Anderson. Suzy and Sam fall in love and run away together, and the small New England island where they live is tossed into turmoil as a search party mobilizes to find them. Starring Anderson troupe regulars Bill Murray and Jason Schwartzman along with Frances McDormand, Bruce Willis, Tilda Swinton, and Harvey Keitel, Moonrise Kingdom is a charming retro romp awash in Anderson’s unconventional style and visual tailoring.

Where to watch?
Original (English) audio and Hungarian subtitles at the Hajógyári Open Air Cinema at 7pm, July 5


The Endless Summer

Although it premiered 50 years ago, The Endless Summer endured the time that has passed as the most influental adventure-sports documentary ever made. It wasn’t the first of the genre, but it was unique in its huge crossover appeal and aw-shucks wholesome sincerity; that’s why it could spark popular interest in surf culture that has endured at the movies ever since, whether in direct descendants like Step Into Liquid or Keanu Reeves’s Point Break. Although it didn’t have a real soundtrack, that didn’t matter: similarly to a great silent film, one gets the picture just by watching the pictures. And that’s why The Endless Summer is such a cult documentary - it visually taps into the wanderlust that sends us to far-flung beaches in search of an escape from life that we can’t find at home.

At ZSIRÁF at 7pm, July 8


Bone Tomahawk

Another month, another revisionist Western starring Kurt Russell; S. Craig Zahler’s striking debut feature is a confident twist on the classic frontier yarn. When cannibal savages kidnap a group of settlers from the town of Bright Hope, an unlikely team led by Sheriff Hunt (Russell) sets out to bring them home. The majority of Bone Tomahawk is comprised of this vibrantly drawn quartet’s cross-country rescue mission, until a third-act reversal nudges the film towards horror territory. Blending tropes of the classic Western with trace elements of grungy horror may sound ill-conceived, but at times Bone Tomahawk really does plays like The Searchers meets the troglodytes from The Descent, the genre mash-up being far more successful than it has any right to be. It instantly marks S. Craig Zahler as a name to watch.
