|Seoul Cinema is located in downtown Seoul, in the area of Jongno. It boasts a 25-year history since its inception in 1978. It now has twelve screens, and was the first domestic theater to enlarge into three screens and become a multiplex theater in Korea. Seoul Cinema is called one of the main theaters due to its strong influence in deciding the success of movies. Here autograph events and movie premiers with stars attending are occasionally held. If you are lucky, you can actually meet the actors and actresses who star in the premiering movies. Seoul Cinema is also called the Mecca of Korean Movies since a large portion of the movies shown here are Korean movies.
There is a square in front of the Cinema where people can get together. Beside the movie, you can enjoy the food from the vendors lined up on the street. They sell squid, fried leather fish, fried potatoes and other interesting and delicious things. When you are hungry, you can also go to the fast food restaurants, stands and ice-cream shops inside the theater. There is a large lounge on the 4th floor in case you get tired. When you want to drink coffee, you can go next door to the espresso cafes. After the movie you can easily go to other places since Jongno has convenient transportation. Just walk down to Jongno 1(il)-ga, and you can experience the upper side of downtown of Seoul.
