The cinema often shows movies/cartoons for kids and one or two mainstream movies. Keep in mind that most movies for kids are dubbed, so if your kids do not speak Dutch, or you want to experience the movie in its original language, think twice before you go there.
Mainstream movies are subbed in Dutch.
