Cinemas in Shenzhen
Coastal City Cinema
Phone: 8635 9166
Address: 深圳市南山区文心五路33号海岸城购物中心三楼 (Chinese)
3rd Floor, Coastal City, 33 Wenxin Road, Nanshan District, Shenzhen (English)
Info: By far the best theater for expats based in Shekou or Nanshan, Coastal City Cinema impresses thanks to its glitzy décor, vast number of screens, and the diverse array of restaurants and attractions in the surrounding mall. Its location’s highly convenient as well, as it’s only 15-20 minutes away from Sea World by taxi, but is also situated right next to the highway leading towards the central districts of Futian and Luohu.
MCL Cinema (Garden City)
Phone: 2685 8870
Address: 深圳南山区 南海大道花园城中心五楼 (Chinese)
5th Floor, Garden City Centre, Nanhai Boulevard, Nanshan District, Shenzhen
Info: Although its screens are limited, Garden City’s friendly atmosphere and even closer proximity to Shekou – 5 mins from Sea World by taxi – make it a solid alternative to Coastal City for the area’s expats.
Phone: 2531 3556
Address: 深圳市福田区福华三路COCOPARK购物公园2楼 (Chinese)
2nd Floor, Coco Park, Fuhua 3rd Road, Futian District, Shenzhen (English)
Info: Like Coastal City, Broadway Cinema benefits from a hyper-modern design, spacious screens, and a bustling shopping complex directly outside it. Located in the heart of Futian, it’s obviously a prime choice for those living within or close to the district.
Golden Harvest Theater (The MixC)
Phone: 8266 8182
Address: 深圳罗湖区1881宝安南路华润中心万象成中座三楼 (Chinese)
3rd Floor, Middle Building, MixC Shopping Mall, Huarun Centre, 1881 Baoan South Road, Luohu District, Shenzhen (English)
Info: Shenzhen’s most upmarket cinema, the MixC is currently the largest cinema complex in Guangdong, featuring over 12 cinema halls equipped with state of the art digital projectors and surround sound audio systems. Bigger doesn’t always equal better though, as the cinema’s increased price and relatively obscure location ultimately make it less of an attractive option for residents living outside of Luohu in districts such as Futian and Nanshan.
MCL Cinema (Hi Citygate Mall)
Phone: 2685 8870
Address: 深圳市罗湖区太宁路喜荟城购物中心二楼 (Chinese)
2nd Floor, Hi Citygate Mall, Tai Ning Road, Luohu District, Shenzhen (English)
Info: Located within walking distance of Hua Qiang Bei, the city’s famous IT district, the cinema in Hi Citygate mall is easy to find for newcomers and conveniently placed in one of Shenzhen’s most bustling shopping malls. As such, it’s the cinema of choice for those seeking a night out in Luohu District.
