  • New Horizon Mall, Hankou District, Wuhan Tiandi – Lugouqiao Road, Jiang’ an District
  • International Plaza Mall, Wuhan Hankou
  • Livat Mall

Before going to the movie theater, you can check Mtime website ( or WeChat (Me/Wallet/Movie Tickets) to find the posters and trailers for the latest movies; you can also find show times and cinemas’ locations.

Many cinemas and group-buying sites offer online purchasing services (you can sometimes get tickets at a cheaper price online, but this is not always the case) but if you are not familiar with these websites, you can also purchase your tickets directly at the cinema. Don’t be embarrassed to ask the staff at the box office for help!

Good to know: Most foreign films are shown in both English and Chinese. Be sure to check with the staff to make sure that you are buying tickets to the right movie…

Another thing to be aware of is seat assignments. When you go to purchase your tickets, a box office staff member will ask you to choose your seats. Obviously, getting your tickets earlier will allow you to have more seating options!

Note to our French-speaking members: The “Panorama du Cinéma Francais” takes place each year in June in Wuchang. A nice occasion to enjoy a selection of 10 French movies!
