This massive movie theater boasts a dozen screens showing mostly Chinese blockbusters but a few American hits. You'll find most films have English subtitles, but the movie schedule online will always specify languages.
The best thing about this theater is that you pick your seats out when you buy your tickets. This ensures you'll end up with a seat you want. The teller shows you a diagram and you pick out your exact seats in relation to the screen, and you can see if the film is already too full. Seats are large and comfortable and even recline, and the tiered system means your view will never be blocked.
Prices are western equivalent at around $11 a person but if you sign up to become a member of the Megabox you get a decent discount and signing up is no extra cost to you.
