Seoul Cinema is one of the oldest theaters in Seoul. It had only one movie screen in 1979 when it opened, but is now a multiplex with 11 screens. The movie halls are relatively small, with 80-100 seats, but the cinema frequently hosts previews and other events. It shows both commercial and independent films and around 1,680 movies are shown yearly (according to the Korean Film Council for 2014). Old projectors and films are exhibited on one side of the cinema, adding distinctly vintage feel to your typical movie outing.
