This cinema in a Xintiandi mall is where stars often come to walk the red carpet for Hollywood premieres. George Clooney was here in 2015. They show English and Chinese movies in big rooms with jewel toned velvet decor. Tickets are 100rmb or 110rmb for 3D. On Tuesdays, tickets are half price before 7pm. Wednesday is Ladies' Night (guy purchases one full price ticket, the lady gets in free). Saturday and Sunday tickets are half price before noon. They have sweet and salty popcorn, and a large is 28rmb. It's a great place to see 3D movies, and the seats in Salon 1 are adjustable. They've also got some VIP rooms with leather chairs where you can lay down. They sell a lot of official merch in here too. The place is packed most of the time, but the crowd at the midnight premieres are mostly just trendy young kids with bad manners rather than diehard fans. Sadly, the bathrooms close at 11pm.
