    Huge, super old-school stand alone gem with lots of marble flooring and a grand staircase, built in 1928 by Hungarian architect Laszlo Hudec who designed a ton of famous buildings in Shanghai (including Wukang Mansion). Tons of history here -- all the newest... Read more

    Just across from Xujiahui park, this one has more of an independent cinema vibe. Built back in 1951, it doesn't feel corporate (despite being owned by SFC) and it's not in a mall. The three rooms are small-ish but comfortable, and the third room has VIP seats for... Read more

    As of 2016, this is one of the nicest and most futuristic places to see a movie in Shanghai. It's big: 6 halls and 1046 seats total. Facilities are great, with comfortable theater areas, and clean and comfortable 3D glasses. They've got RealD technology, if you're... Read more

    Awkwardly designed but popular cinema, with a total of 1069 seats in six rooms. Very crowded, but they've got IMAX and Dolby and it's in People's Square so that's to be expected. There is also a Hershey's store right next to the ticket booth. The rest of Raffle's... Read more

    Xujiahui cinema with four theaters, the largest of which has 268 seats. All have stadium seating, massive screens and good surround sound. The seats are somewhat small, so a broad shouldered person might be uncomfortable. Tickets are 100rmb for 2D, 120rmb for 3D, or... Read more

    Cute old cinema with local community vibes, built in 1930. Limited English language films. 380 seats, no VIP, no IMAX. They do a lot of Chinese-language live theater here. One large screening room, only two or three showings per day. Tickets are cheap here -- like... Read more

    Cheap modern cinema on the sixth floor of Times Square Plaza, with four halls and 714 seats. The best part about this place is that the gap between the seats is really big, so you won't bother anyone when you're trying to squeeze though. No IMAX or VIP, just 3D.... Read more

    Definitely a nice place to catch a flick in Lujiazui, the IFC branch of Palace is even nicer than the one in IAPM, as of 2016, anyway. However, unlike the IAPM branch, they don't do midnight premieres of blockbusters. Facilities are great, with comfortable theater... Read more

    Modern, clean, new (opened in 2015) cinema in the Jing'an Kerry Center. Comfy seats. Five screens and 726 seats total. No IMAX, which is sad. One of the salons is huge, then there's several smaller salons that are really comfortable. No VIP seats. Tickets are... Read more
