The best films at the cinema this week

A selection of the best movies currently on general release in Beijing

We almost can’t believe that La La Land, Damien Chazelle’s glossy, award-winning throwback to classic MGM musicals is actually hitting cinemas in Beijing this weekend, so rarely do of-the-moment, critically acclaimed non-blockbuster foreign movies actually come out in China. Chazelle’s a great director and it’s been decades since America’s made a great musical, so this should definitely be worth seeing on a big screen. Last week it equalled the record for most Oscar nominations ever, so we're pretty pumped.

Here are our picks of the best films in the cinema in Beijing this week. See here for a full list of all the movies in Beijing theatres.

You can book tickets for all these films – usually at least 50 percent cheaper than walk-in prices at the cinema – through Time Out Tickets. Click on the film you want to see, choose your seat and pay via card or WeChat Wallet – it's as easy as that.
