Your local cinema .com (subtitled screenings)

This is a website that gives information on which films are available in your local area with subtitled screenings and when they are to be shown.  You can also watch subtitled trailers on this website.

(It is a good idea to check with the cinema before you go or at least before you pay for your ticket that the subtitles will actually be shown.)
