I heard that the admission for movies in Japan was high compared to those of other foreign countries. It is usually 1,800yen, but on the 1st of every month you can see a movie with 1,000yen. It sounds good, doesn't it?
If you are female, you can see a movie with 1,000yen every Thrusday. It is called "Ladies' day."
I went to Cinema Taiyo yesterday, which is locate three-minute walk from the Matsukaze-cho streetcar stop. It is a comfortable theater with spacious seats. It is convenient because they provide free parking lot.
A small theater which often plays minor movies is located three-minute walk from the Goryokaku-koen streetcar station. Please walk toward the Goryokaku Park taking the street next to the mister donut and you will find a theater, Cinema Iris. I like the most movies played at this theater. If you drive to there, you have to use a nearby pay car park. It's a small disadvantage. At this movie theater, you can see a movie with 1,000yen on the 1st of every month and they apply "Ladies' day" on every Thursday.
