Movie Theaters print


An evening at the movies has long been a part of entertainment in Korea. Today, cinemas can be found in major urban areas throughout the country . These are either multiplex chains with several screens or independently-run theaters. Some of the larger operators are CGV, Megabox, and Lotte Cinema. These theaters offer wide screens and state-of-the-art audio facilities. On the other hand, the independent theaters have decades of history and bring a flair of nostalgia for older customers. Movie theaters are located in commercial centers with department stores, shops and restaurants, so moviegoers can also enjoy shopping and other activities.
