Plus, being an international city, cinephiles can watch both foreign and local flicks. So, move over Netflix because nothing beats watching a movie on the big screen. See our top picks of the best movies to watch in Hong Kong cinemas.

Make sure to bookmark this list as we update our picks every month. The only thing you have to do is save the release date on your calendar, book your tickets, and you’re good to go. Happy watching!
