Most major cinemas in Beijing show foreign blockbusters in the original language - namely English, usually. You just have to be careful to make sure the screening you choose is in the original language as sometimes there are special screenings which are dubbed in Chinese. Mega Box in Sanlitun is one of the most popular cinemas among the international community in Beijing because of its central location in the heart of the Village and because they show foreign movies in the original sound with Chinese sub-titles. UME and Wanda cinemas are also popular with many branches in convenient locations across the city. Check out the link to the cinema listings below for more info.

You could get a DvD and take off the subtitles. I think most of the cinemas have subtitles for the chinese viewer. I don't think I've been to a cinema without seeing them...

A:Going to HK would be the best bet I reckon, especially if you were looking for a church wedding. Chinese weddings are pretty grim IMO - you go to a barren govt dept with souless officials and navigate red tape so some guy can give you a red stamp and a marriage book. You get expensive pictures taken of you both posing in places you'd never go to in everyday life that is somehow supposed to represent your wedding, then a while later it's off to a restaurant where a game show host kind of guy makes sure it's as tacky as possible while the guests eat as fast as they can so they can leave as soon as they finish eating and gave you money. Hell, I'd go to Thailand or the Philippines and get married in Paradise.   -- Stiggs
