Movie theaters can be found all across the country, especially inside department stores or among shops and restaurants in urban areas. Some are multiplex chains with several screens and state-of-the-art audio visual facilities; they offer convenience, and are usually operated by big companies such as CGV, Megabox and Lotte Cinema. Others are older and smaller with single screens; they render nostalgia, and are usually independently run. Either way, going to the movies remains one of the most popular entertain options in Korea.
