Q: Theatre (cinema) going experiences...

I haven't tried it here, and I'm really not excited to do so. But, Star Wars is coming out soon.....

 

Do I dread too much? Or won't it be as bad as my nightmare suggests??

Going to the movies is hell on earth , Pop corn is sweet and disgusting ( DON'T BUY THE POP CORN) chinese ppl always playing on their phones or chewing with their mouth open ( nasty chewing sounds) or talking to each other.Oh and dont forget them kicking the back of your chair whenever they wanna move.

 

It drives me crazy to the point that one time i slapped a chinese guy infront of me in the back of the head cuz he just wouldnt shut up.

 

Anyway the new hunger  games is coming soon, so i will be expecting a fight with some chinese idiot soon....

Star Wars won't be out here until the new year. 

 

Go for it....I go regularly in Guangzhou and only occasionally do I have to tell the gobby idiots to shut up. Quite civilized in GZ

I honestly enjoy going to the movies with the wife.......  just not as often as she wants to go.

we have seen numerous movies that I probaly would never have gone to at home, but they are fun.... great night out once in a while. The theatre here is top notch and clean and, well top notch!

I loved going to the movies at home, and  it's ok here too.

 

Ok, the popcorn is sweet and people around you talk on their phone sometimes but overall it's still a fun night out.

Yeah, don't count on any good western films being released until after Chunese new year. They will want to protect the Chinese film industry. I find theatres here aren't too bad but to be honest I prefer watching a film at home with a beer and some snacks.

We have an IMAX which I go to from time to time, but it is quite expensive at about 90yuan.  I usually download movies and watch them at home on my big screen TV, but for the good ones I would make an evening of it and treat the GF.

 

BTW, does anyone have an idea when SPECTRE will be released in China?  Apparantly it was released today in the rest of the world.

The question is when will Star Wars come out here. Since they only allow a certain amount of foreign films to be shown each year, and we're already in November, I wouldn't be surprised if this year's quota is up and we have to wait till January. 

 

But yeah. I try to avoid going to the cinema as much as possible here. If you thought China was annoying to start with, don't bother going.

A:Going to HK would be the best bet I reckon, especially if you were looking for a church wedding. Chinese weddings are pretty grim IMO - you go to a barren govt dept with souless officials and navigate red tape so some guy can give you a red stamp and a marriage book. You get expensive pictures taken of you both posing in places you'd never go to in everyday life that is somehow supposed to represent your wedding, then a while later it's off to a restaurant where a game show host kind of guy makes sure it's as tacky as possible while the guests eat as fast as they can so they can leave as soon as they finish eating and gave you money. Hell, I'd go to Thailand or the Philippines and get married in Paradise.   -- Stiggs
