Over the years, Netflix has released dozens of films in theaters either through award festivals or limited releases. In November and December 2022, you will be able to see many Netflix Original films and documentaries in cinemas.

It’s been a busy fall for Netflix when it comes to limited theatrical releases. In October, you might catch The luckiest girl in the world, Descending, The good nurse In the west, nothing is new, and Wendell and savage in some theaters.

Watching these movies below in theaters isn’t as easy as it looks, as not all exhibitors carry movies worldwide. You’ll probably have to dig and maybe even travel farther to watch Netflix movies in theaters. Google is your friend for finding your local theater showing Netflix movies.

In the United States, Cinemark, Marcus Theaters and Harkins Theaters offer Netflix movies. Naturally, Netflix’s own cinemas in New York and Los Angeles also offer their own films.

In the UK, Showcase, Everyman Cinemas and The Light offer films from the streamer.
