The third rule of Korean movie theaters is buy provisions. By provisions we mean the greatest movie theater snack of all time: Butter squid and beer The fourth rule of Korean movie theaters is don’t buy the basic ticket. for a mere two dollars extra you get so much more. You can get double arm rests in case you want to double fist your beer. Or you can get you own Beats by Dre headset with perfect surround sound. Or you can even get a screen that’s bigger than IMAX. This thing is the largest cinema screen in the world and it’ll only cost you an extra buck to see it. An extra three bucks and you get seats with a whole side table in between you and your neighbor and a compartment for stashing your homemade soap. An extra four bucks and you get 4DX which is just 3D but in seats that move, and spray wind, water, fog, and smells at you in time with the movie. Pick better seats. Assigned seating is a given but you can also get seats that recline you can even get a couch on a separate balcony! And then, there is this. The final rule of Korean movie theaters is If this is your first time in Korea you have to go.

    Bunch of bullshit, nothing unique here this exists all over the world. These are premium theaters and cost over 3x the price of a normal theater (~8 USD for normal, over 30USD for premium).

    Contrary to the average American's belief, many Countries around the World have a great deal of things that are better than America's. School systems, Free College, little crime. The list goes on. America is not the greatest Country on Earth by a long shot. Not even close. Thats just American propaganda. Here, there are lots of people who have never been anywhere else so they just believe what they're told.

    Theatres in America are already putting recliners in their theatres with restaurants And 4d in some place. The only thing that I have never seen are Beds.

    You don't have to go that far, we have got the same thing here in Mexico. They're the same. Koreans sold the concept to mexican cinemas.

    Theater seats in America are filthy and smells like piss on back alley, and worst of all it's too fucking expensive with tiny screen

    nice video as ever and awesome narration by our narrator as usual. those seats are awesome but the food selection…. oh my God. i am salivating. here in Indonesia we can only get popcorn and some snacks, and maybe hotdogs or fries. if we want to bring cakes or other food we have to stuck those in our bag and pray so it won't be taken when we get inside (because security checks bag for camera and sometimes food before getting in the theater) and then when we're inside the the cake will be flatter since we tuck in it so deep inside our bag.

    If that was in the USA, theaters would be like "Would you like to refinance your house?"
    You already need to take out a small loan for the damn soda and popcorn.

    Except almost all of these "additions" don't really add anything. Why would I want to go to a movie and watch it with terrible Beats headphones, isn't that why theaters install Dolby Surround? The beds and sofas are totally superfluous to the viewing experience. Seats need is to be comfortable, not nap inducing. This is essentially an array of gimmicks that exist outside the film in order to get you to go to a movie. You know what fills seats even better than gimmicks? Screening good films.

    SOO ZEE AND LEIGH! I thought you guys were gone from youtube, and I am so happy to find you've got an awesome new series going. I just want to say that I only found this video because my 60 year old father send it to me, and he has no interest in Korea whatsoever. You guys have made it. An old man across the world who only reads the news found your video.

    I kinda never want to experience this (I can't really back that up, my willpower sucks) simply because it would kill all other theater experiences onward. I would never again be fulfilled. And that. Would be sad. I don't like to be sad.

    But these vids make me not sad. XD <—see?

    It's funny you don't see so many old theaters in Korea. My hometown (Plymouth, MI) has the Penn Theater which was built in 1941 and they are playing Sandlot this wk end 😉 The Seoul Theater plays "Love Actually" every Valentine's Day. I've been meaning to go there for 8 years. Hopefully I'll make it next year! Thanks for the fun and informative video. Can't wait til the next one comes out.

    How is this the first time that I've heard about you two having your own channel?! I don't remember seeing Simon or Martina promoting it on their YouTube channel. I don't follow them on any other forms of social media though…was I the only one out of the loop?!

    As someone who lives in San Francisco, I've just started to actively choose independent movie theaters over AMC/Century/..etc. and I wish i had started earlier. They don't smell like Chucky Cheese and butter, they show more independent films, better food/meals you can take inside, alcoholic beverages are available, and each one has its own quirks to discover. They understand that a movie should be an experience, not just a viewing.

    I wish theaters where I live would be like this. I would so not mind paying the prices tickets are now and more if it was this. There's luckily one theater that at least has a bar and area to eat (with restaurant quality food) but I want this.

    There has been article going around about a theatre in Switzerland that converted all their seats into bed and everyone is losing their marbles and I'm like that is sooooooo old news because Korea has already done and SooZee and Leigh have done it in fantastic style
