MOViE MOViE Cityplaza Cinema Site Visit
Broadway Circuit has opened MOViE MOViE Cityplaza Cinema on December 29, 2017, and we were invited to join a press tour before CNY holiday. MOViE MOViE is a TV channel curated by Broadway Cinematheque since 2012, so MOViE MOViE Cityplaza Cinema is a enhanced follow-up of it.
When you walk into MOViE MOViE Cinema, you will first visit a new kubrick called house by kubrick. house by kubrick is a cafe, book and disc shop and gallery and exhibition space, and hosts movie culture activities and movie screening sharing sessions. Providing drinks, cakes and desserts and two different kinds of handmade bread each day, it is filled with art pieces by local artists and many movie poster artworks from around the world.
After house by kubrick, you would arrive at the box-office and snack bar. The flexible box-office can be relocated to pave way for event activities as well.
Snack bar provides the usual BC snacks for cinema-goers, an exclusive shredded pork hot dog, and different kinds of beverage including soda drinks, draft beers and fine wines.
MOViE MOViE Cityplaza Cinema has 7 houses, with houses 1-3 and VIP house called MM Moments on the first floor, and houses 4-5 and the biggest house MOViEMAXX on the second.
MOViEMAXX is the biggest house and carries state-of-the-art set up, with AuroMax 3D sound system, Real D Ultimate Screen and 4k laser projector to provide a brighter and sharper image. House 1 and 5 are eqipped with Dolby Atmos sound system instead. By the time of the press tour, the VIP house MM Moments was not ready yet, but it is now open since CNY holiday. For a complete list of features of each house, please see our chart below.

Above the escalators connecting the two floors, there are sculptures based on iconic movie moments, let's see if you can guess them all.
Overall, MOViE MOViE Cityplaza Cinema feels like a well-deserved update of Broadway Cinematheque, and the two will run movie festival together like MM Life Is Art. Movie-goers can enjoy another great spot that offers more than mainstream films.
