Let’s Catch a Flick!

Build It.

In the ’80s and mid ’90s the movie theater scene around the outskirts of Tokyo, near Tachikawa and Hachioji, was horrible. For a few years, Tachikawa did not have a movie theater at all and Hachioji had one screen with sticky floors and ’70s speakers. It was dismal. But that has all changed recently. In the general Tama (多摩) area, we now have the following cinema complexes either built or being built:

Those are places I would consider within striking distance.

Be Heard!

Currently, we give our money to Cinema City in Tachikawa. Cinema City has introduced Cinema Council. Cinema Council allows Cinema City members to vote for movies they want to see. For example, currently, Tim Burton’s latest flick is playing. The question is, which old Tim Burton flicks do you want to see?


Yahoo.co.jp provided the best list of movie theaters with their movie search by location. Thanks Yahoo.

    In Shinjuku, the main theaters are grouped together right in the midst of the ordure that is Kabukicho. Though close and convenient for me, these days I hardly ever go to movies there because I prefer to ration out my visits to Kabukicho for only the special times when I can fully savor its unique cloaca maxima ambiance.

    So for movies I go to Shibuya instead, or to mothership Mori, or even to the theater next to the Prince Hotel in Shinagawa.
