Metropolis Empire Sofil
Independent movies and movie festivals often in partnership with cultural institutions and embassies.
Great single-screen theater for festivals and indie movies. Most movies in Lebanon have English and French subtitles if they're in Arabic.
“For Arab speakers, this theater has become one of Beirut’s cult places with musicals playing almost all-week long, interpreting Egyptian and Lebanese musical repertoires dating back to the 50’s till our modern days. ”
“This is one of the last big parks in Beirut that are left over. As so many places in this city, this place has as well a historical story. This park is located on the green line which used to separate the fighting neighbourhoods. After many years of being closed for any citizens, it is finally again open to the public. It is a wonderful place to have a walk or a run. Especially very early in the morning it is magical since you will see the sunrise behind the mountains and the mingling of all kind of different people to do sports. ”
