This paper describes a Question Answer- ing system which retrieves answers from structured data regarding cinemas and movies. The system represents the first prototype of a multilingual and multi- modal QA system for the domain of tour- ism. Based on specially designed domain ontology and using Textual Entailment as a means for semantic inference, the sys- tem can be used in both monolingual and cross-language settings with slight ad- justments for new input languages.
