The first thing that hit us as we entered this theater was just how grand it is. The foyer is marbled throughout and a man playing a grand piano wouldn't be out of place in this setting. The next thing we noticed was how cheap it all is. Unlike other theaters which have specials according to the day of the week (Tuesdays are generally half price), or time of the day (tickets are generally cheaper in the morning), Century's tickets always stay at the fixed price of YY35. When we went, the crowd was made up of more sophisticated movie-goers--no ring tones went off during the movie and when the feature started, a revered hush fell over the audience. And while all cinemas seemed to have the same variety of movies displayed, Century Big Cinema also had French films with English and Chinese subtitles.
