SmartShanghai.com Editor's Description
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 couples. No IMAX, but this one is a bit cheaper than the big cinemas; tickets are around 100-120rmb without using an app, and half that with one. It's easy to access because a taxi can drop you off right in front. Lots of dining and drinking options on this block too -- Pistolera is just next door for a pre-movie dinner and Park Tavern is there for post-movie drinks. On the negative side, they don't sell beer, but no one is gonna stop you from packing a couple tall boys in your coat or bag. Showtimes: Gewara.
