There are many multiplex cinemas in Oslo, one in Sandvika, and one in Asker. Most films are shown in the original version with Norwegian subtitles except children’s films, which are dubbed into Norwegian. However, usually children’s films are shown in original version for a short period. Look for the VO sign. You can book tickets over the telephone or online and pick them up an hour beforehand or upon arrival. For information on what’s on look in the Budstikka for Asker and Sandvika and Aftenposten for Oslo or look on the internet.
