Movie Theaters in Taipei

Formerly Warner Village there is a theater in the heart of the Xinyi District and in the shadow of Taipei 101. It is a good, modern, comfortable theater, but often has long lines and crowded theaters. I advise going to one of the other theaters as the theater quality is the same but the crowds are not as bad.

For a bit of luxury the basement of the Westin Taipei Hotel has a theater in the basement level which has sofas with footrests. Tickets are NTD 350 and reservations are advised however if you show up and no tickets are available, you may wait to see if there is a no show and can get seated just before show time.

Location: Nanjing East Road, Sec. 3, No. 133, B2 / 台北市南京東路3段133號B2
On the north-east side of the Fuxing Rd. intersection, this is walking distance from the Nanjing East Rd. MRT station on the Brown-Muzha Line. When you enter the Westin, turn left and take the escalator to B2 or turn right and take the elevator.

Hey Ben! =) Just out of curiosity on average how many 3D theatre screens are there in Taiwan at the moment? I think 3D is the new wave for Cinema. Very exciting technology. =D
