Indie and World Films at The Spot Cinemas

The Spot cinema is an art house cinema in Taipei, with two locations – one in Huashan 1914 Creative Park and the other near Zhongshan MRT.

The Spot Cinema

Both have two screens and show a variety of art house and slightly more commercial films. The one near Zhongshan shows artier films than the Huashan cinema but both show a good selection of world films.

Both sets of screens have good audio/visual quality, and they have subtitles for some non-English films.
