There are plenty of cinemas in Stockholm. A good thing for everyone not speaking Swedish is that all movies are shown in original language with Swedish subtitles. Children movies are usually shown in Swedish language though. Cinema theaters in Sweden are usually showing only Swedish and English language movies so movies from Russia, India, France, Italy Spain etc are rarely seen in Swedish cinema theaters. For Russian movies there is a yearly Russian movie festival called Kinorurik. Cinemas are usually well equiped but most cinemas were built a long time ago which means they are not as modern as Forum cinemas in Riga and Tallinn or Formula Kino in St Petersburg. Picture and sound quality should always be of high quality.
one can find most Cinemas in Stockholm and book tickets.
