Special Movie Theaters in Seoul

Are you a movie buff? Are you planning for a romantic movie date with your special someone or a fun movie bonding with family and friends? Seoul offers a wide variety of film viewing options but if you’re looking for the cream of the crop, the best possible place to plant yourself for two hours of cinematic bliss, there are a few spots that rise above the rest. Here are some unique movie theaters to visit  here in Seoul. 🙂

Sweetbox Theater

Sweetbox seats are typically located at the last rows of the theater. It features a huge cozy double sofa. It doesn’t cost that much and it doesn’t have that annoying drink holder in the middle, giving you more comfort as you snuggle up with your special someone. There is also a sweetbox premium option that provides luxurious leather sofas as well as cushions for a highly enjoyable experience at the theaters. 🙂

Cine de Chef

It’s a movie theater and fine dining restaurant rolled into one! You can enjoy full on-call waiter service, featuring a comprehensive food and beverage menu, delivered direct to your seat, before or throughout the movie!

Gold Class Premium Cinema and Lounge

It features an intimate setting for no more than 30-40 people, making every seat literally the ‘best in the house’. This is one of the most elite and extravagant theaters you can find here in Seoul. I love the ridiculously comfortable looking and exquisite couch in front. This is true class. 🙂
