“Nice Movie Theater”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 10, 2012

Korean Movie Theaters are very different from Theaters in other countries. It is an experience in and of itself to go to a movie. You get pre-assigned seats, so there is no rush to grab a good seat.

“Not bad at all!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 26, 2012

As with most korean movie theaters, you get more than what you expect. The venue, customer service, and seating are awesome.... Being American.. Once you figure out the system... you come to realize that this place is all about the movie goer.

“excellent theater experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 24, 2012

Mega Box is one of the better theater experiences I've had in my life. Their concession stand was top notch as well and reasonably priced.

“Escapism”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 23, 2012

You can spend a couple of hours here and forget you're in Korea entirely. The films are mostly box office hits and the food for sale is similar to that of a Western cinema. The ticketing is easily done by machine or by taking a number and speaking to an attendant (most of whom will be happy to help you in broken English.) Being so close to coffee shops and restaurants is useful to make it a night out or to pass time until the film starts. It is VERY busy, and many Koreans books tickets ahead of time, so you might have o get there early to reserve your tickets.
