This cinema complex is definitely worth a visit if you are into state-of-the-art cinema technology coupled with the very latest in cinema comfort. Virgin took the concept of "first class" from the airline industry and produced the "premier screen". Each row has just two seats, each with a tray for drinks and snacks, to ensure that you experience luxury on par with the first class section of an international flight. Seats in all nine of the theaters can be booked in advance, so there is no need to queue for tickets.
Located in one of Tokyo's most vibrant student districts, the Shochiku is the remnant of the bygone age. This classic "underground" theater seats 240 in somewhat spartan conditions, and the only refreshments available are soft drinks from vending machines. In its favor, however, this cinema shows a fairly good combination of art movies, foreign language classics and reruns, as well as some rare cinema classics. Phone ahead for listings of current and upcoming events.
The Eurospace is a modern setting and is one of the best places in the city to watch a film. The theater is single screen but the ambiance and the entire arrangement is so tastefully done that you will fall in love. The theater screens mostly independent films, low on budget from Asia and Europe; their collection has become quite famous with moviegoers. There are many entertainment venues in its vicinity as well.
Multiplexes have changed the entire game of movie-going and single screen theaters are no longer preferred. But when it is classic places like the Shin-Bungeiza in Tokyo, who could deny the charm? The theater is known for screening classic Japanese movies along with some Hollywood favorites and is especially popular for all-night screening during weekends. Though one of the oldest theaters, Shin-Bungeiza is done in ornate seating, old and charming ambiance, and well-facilitated with lighting and acoustics, promising a fine theater experience.
