NOTE: These are foreign language films.

You can find more information about Korean films on this Korean Films website. 
NEW MOVIES are usually (but not always) released on Thursday in Korea and changes to the schedule can be made at any time

K4E Notes: Most people in Korea book their tickets online and so there are often no seats (or very few) left if you go directly to the theatre. Unfortunately, anyone who is not a Korean citizen may be unable to book tickets online because a Korean ID number is required by most sites.

The CGV chain does offer a 'memberships for foreigners' that requires one's name as it appears on one's passport as well as one's alien registration number. Go to the website, scroll down to the bottom of the page (ignore the pop ups), and click on "Membership for foreigners"

NB:You will want to check via 02-1330 to see if the movie is still showing at the above listed theatres, especially those films that have been around for a while.

Anyone who has additional information on current or upcoming movies and where they are playing, please contact k4e at events@korea4expats.com
