HeChuen 2nd Run Movie Theatre
Second run movies at a first class theater are what you will find at HeChuen movie theatre. They offer 2 back-to-back movies for only NT$120! If you're a student or soldier, movies are only NT$100. The price becomes even lower (NT$60) if you hold one of their V.I.P cards. To get a V.I.P. card for yourself, friends or co-workers, simply drop off a stamped self-addressed envelope with the amount of cards you would like, and they can send them out to you. First opened 26 years ago as both a live theatre and one that shows movies, it changed in 1986 to strictly movies and was completely renovated in 1997. HeChuen has recently installed new luxury seating. Each floor has its own snack-bar with most things you would find at a 7-11, including beer.
