A Cool Place to See a Movie

So this is your typical Japanese theater. If you are a foreigner like myself, here’s what you need to know: in Japan, going to the movies is expensive....like $18 a ticket. BUT if you go you can easily save $6 if you are over 50, a lady, a student, etc. Essentially there are a lot of discounts, so check the website and get help at the kiosk if you need it. They only sell tickets via the kiosk as far as I can tell. Most movies made in English are shown in English with Japanese subtitles, so don’t worry about language issues. There are two buildings here — so you might have to go next door to find your theater. Also, there is a cafe in the building with a lot of the theaters, and you can order burgers and things to take into the theater with you if you want. If you are a popcorn enthusiast, you can get sweet or salty popcorn or a combo, so don’t be taken aback by your choices at concessions. Sweet is more like kettle corn I think, but I didn’t have it so I don’t know for sure. When you get to the theater just know that NO ONE MAKES ANY NOISE and EVERYONE STAYS UNTIL THE VERY LAST CREDIT. Not kidding. Funny stuff, scary stuff, whatever...its total silence. And everyone sits politely while the credit for “chair wrangler” or whatever random crew credit scrolls by. Don’t be that guy and leave early! As for projection quality, seating, etc... it’s pretty standard. You’ll feel like you are in a multiplex back home.

The area

Neighborhood: Shinkyogoku Shopping District
Those who delight in shopping and cuisine will find themselves at home in Shinkyogoku. Lauded and visited by locals for its Nishiki Market, where baskets of fragrant spices, dried fish, and just-fried foods are piled high along the snaking streets of its enclosed outdoor shopping spaces, Shinkyogoku is not only a hub for fresh fare, but also for fast fashion fixes. Trends-in-the-making can be spotted in the tall windows of several one-of-a-kind stores featuring local labels and modish boutiques. Arcades, outdoor concert spaces, mega department stores, and small, enchanting cafes have sprung up to accommodate the increasing traffic. Whether looking for souvenirs and kitsch on Shinkyogoku Street, or scoping out the massive food court and restaurant floor at Takashimaya Department store, there's something for every wallet or purse, and a buyer for every item.

We decided on a whim to go see Downsizing. If you speak English and want to watch a Hollywood film be sure to watch a film with subtitles. It'll be obvious when you're browsing the films. You can book your tickets from a machine in the lobby.

We ordered the half and half popcorn- half salted, half caramel. it came in a giant bucket with a divider.

The cinema was almost empty. Seats are huge and comfortable.

We enjoyed seeing a Japanese cinema :)
