English-language Cinema in Portugal

Information on where and how to find listings of what's on at the movies. With links to online ticket sales and cinemas in Portugal...

Many of the cinemas in Portugal are located in large shopping centres and have multiple theatres showing different movies. Most cinemas show films in their original language with Portuguese subtitles and apart from films for children, they are rarely dubbed.

Pre-ordering tickets for a weekend screening can only be done on or after Thursday, when the weekly programme is changed. The company NOS owns most of Portugal's cinemas.

  • The NOS Cinemas website (in Portuguese) provides online ticket purchase and seat selection for NOS cinemas throughout Portugal. 
  • The UCI Cinemas website is owned and run by the second-largest owner of cinemas in Portugal.
