    • Editor's Description
      The cinema for the Shanghai International Film Festival (SIFF). This place has a '90s kinda vibe, with lots of marble flooring, massive screens, and old-school bathrooms. There's nine rooms with 1058 seats total. Tickets at normal times are 90-180rmb, or half that with an app like Gewara. If you're into sound, they have the world's second largest screen with Dolby Atmos. This place is good for 3D movies. Due to the SIFF connection, they show more local independent and international films that most places in town, and they hold press conferences and director Q&As when the annual event happens in June. The audience is more polite than at a lot of theaters, too. That said, the theater does have noticeably more huangniu (ticket scalpers) that most theaters in town, who can be annoying or hilarious / fascinating, depending on your perspective. Also, you've got CityShop just downstairs if the snacks in the theater don't do it for you. They also have a discount on Mondays and Tuesdays. Despite being owned by the massive, state-owned SFC, this one still has a local vibe.
