Netflix Movies You Can Watch in Theaters in November and December 2022

Over the years, Netflix has released dozens of movies into theaters either via awards festivals or limited releases. In November and December 2022, you’ll be able to catch many Netflix Original movies and documentaries in cinemas.  

It’s been a busy fall for Netflix regarding limited theatrical releases. In October, you could catch Luckiest Girl Alive, Descendant, The Good Nurse, All Quiet on the Western Front, and Wendell & Wild in select theaters.

Watching these movies below in theaters isn’t as easy as it might seem, as not every exhibitor carries movies worldwide. You’ll likely have to do some digging and maybe even travel further afield to watch Netflix movies in theaters. Google is your friend for finding your local theater showing Netflix movies.

In the US, Cinemark, Marcus Theaters, and Harkins Theaters carry Netflix movies. Naturally, Netflix’s own theaters in New York and Los Angeles also carry its own movies.

In the UK, Showcase, Everyman Cinemas, and The Light carry movies from the streamer.
