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 half that with an app like Gewara. Tuesdays are half price and Thursdays have discounts too. Popcorn is sweet. Showtimes: Gewara. SFC (Shanghai Film Corporation) is a huge state-owned chain, with 230 cinemas around China in 23 provinces. They make movies and show movies in their own theaters. We're talking thousands of feature films, animations, and documentaries in China for decades.
