Wanda International Cineplex - 万达国际影城
Introduction: Built and then abandoned by Warner Bros, this sleek, modern theater shows the latest Chinese hits and undubbed movies from Hollywood. The seating is comfortable, but traditionalists be forewarned: There's no salty popcorn, and the picture quality is occasionally grainy. Nonetheless, the large, adjacent arcade is a draw in itself. Tickets are RMB 60-70. Tuesdays are half-price for everybody, while students pay half-price every day. RMB 150 VIP seats allow CBD swanksters to enhance their cinema-viewing experience with ulta-comfy seats, snacks and beverages including up to three glasses of wine.

Add1: 3/F, Bldg 8, Wanda Plaza, 93 Jianguo Road
Tel: 5960 3399
Hrs: 9:00am-10:00pm

East Gate Cinema - 东环影城
Introduction: It may be small and expensive, but with four well-equipped halls showing the newest in foreign and Chinese films, East Gate is one of Beijing's best. Tickets are half price before noon everyday, and it's also the only cinema in town to offer double-seats, which are ideal for cuddling couples or those inclined to get into armrest fights. Head to the nearby subway shop, bakery or cafes to stave off hunger pangs.

UME Cineplex - 华星国际影城
Introduction: The five-floor building is famed for its state-of-the-art equipment, clean environment, and screenings of the latest foreign movies. It's open all day, but half-price tickets can be snagged before 8:30pm. Munch on the standard array of popcorn flavors or head to the nearby Pizza Hut, Subway or Haagen-Dazs to fuel up pre-show. Its biggest claim to fame, literally, is a 430 square meter screen. Tickets RMB 60.

Star City - 新世纪影院
Introduction: This theater has the best movie snacks in town, making it an excellent place to take a date.

Besides showing the latest commercial releases, the theater often hosts small-scale foreign movie festivals-your best bet for catching less mainstream foreign flicks. Tickets from RMB 60.
