Have you ever watched any movies in Tokyo? Yes, as you have known already, Japanese movie theaters are top notch, and English speakers shouldn’t write them off. The Toho Cinemas chain always has at least one English film, often a blockbuster that debuted in the US many weeks before. Those are fine, but the real draw at the Roppongi Hills location is the 10 am classic.

The nine-screen multiplex in Roppongi Hills has a few nifty features – notably its luxurious ‘Premiere’ cinema – and also offers all-night screenings on Fridays, Saturdays and days preceding national holidays. Very comfortable seats (¥1,800-¥3,000). Also, the weekly Mama’s Club Theater screenings are specially tailored to young parents, meaning you can take your baby to the movies, worry-free.The public can watch movies for 1,100 yen every first and fourteenth of each month. Women have additional benefits; every Wednesday is Lady’s Day for 1,100 yen. These discount days sell out quickly, so the best way to purchase is online with a credit card. The website has a few English translations, but knowing some Japanese will be necessary.

You can reserve a seat online beforehand or at one of the kiosks when you arrive. The classics are shown in the Premier theater, which has reclining chairs, blankets, and tables for your Snacks. The tradeoff for expensive tickets is that snacks are way tastier and cheaper than other theaters! Interesting? Please check it out!
