Have to pay for 3D glasses

Heads up, you have to pay for your 3D glasses if you want any for your 3D film. Even though you've already paid €13,50 per ticket. Ridiculous. Never heard of this anywhere else... read more

1) Understaffed, so you wait in line to buy tickets for 15 minutes 2) No customer service, they don't care, as there is no one in charge to take responsibility 3) Slow service everywhere 4) Dirty environment and stinky toilets, used hundreds of times without being cleaned 5) Expensive drinks with limited selection So why to choose this cinema for...

I really like the fact they have original version of the movies. American movies translated into German makes no sense and the actor/actresses voices. The lines to purchase your ticket is long and lengthly in time so go early or buy your ticket online prior The restrooms were disgusting.. Lots of toilet paper on the floor, needs to be attended...

We went to Watch Star Wars in English the other night at the 23:15 showing. Immediately after sitting down it became quite apparent how dirty the the floor was. Scattered with popcorn, litter and sticky drinks and MICE! Altogether we counted three different little white mice running around the seats. If this wasn't bed enough already...after the 1 hour +...

Since arrived in Frankfurt two years, have been looking for good theatre for English movies. CineStar Metropolis is the one that airs the most, although we may still wish more. Ticket price is reasonable. Seats are comfortable. I found it is very useful that one can reserve seats online without advanced payment; but make sure you pick up at the... More

Great theater with nice seats. We saw Magnificent Beasts in english and 3D. What a great show and the stadium seating is excellent. They have assigned seats which I like. The seats were very comfortable. However, I'm 6' with arthritis in my knee, so after sitting for close to 2 hours and 45 minutes my knee started to hurt some.... More

most if the english ones are 3d, which means more expensive. it doesn't have lots of english (original) version-ed movies. but still, not bad.

Whilst the last US originals cinema closed in Frankfurt years ago, this one is the choice for family fun or couples on couple sofas with a fair chance to see blockbusters on its original language. No IMAX though.

the best place to see English films in this area. Tickets reserved online with a confirmation email, picked up before the queues started to form and giving enough time for a meal. Clean cinema, plenty of room and comfortable seating. Ok, popcorn etc., a bit expensive, but we don't do it every day!

It has the most popular movies in english but over all the movies are in german. The line is mostly super long but if you make seat reservations online you don't have to worry about the line. The commercials for the movies are really long. But it's the only movie theater in town.
