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 50rmb a ticket. Nothing fancy, just vibes and characters. They're the only cinema we know of that makes you put a 20rmb deposit down for 3D glasses. Showtimes: Gewara
