One of the more popular cinemas in Beijing, Mega Box screens both the latest Hollywood blockbusters and Chinese films. For RMB 20 per year, their membership program is well worth it. Non-members pay RMB 80 for regular tickets and RMB 120 for 3D tickets. With the discount, members get 50 percent off on weekdays and 30 percent off on weekends and holidays.
User reviews of Mega Box 美嘉欢乐影城
What do we do when the weather is still chilly out.
Well on the weekend this is one of our favourite places.
Eat at one of the restaurants at the village.
Watch a movie.
Shop around or simply hang out in sanlitun .
Good sound system.Clear place.Not too crowded.
Best part I didnt miss the salty popcorns as I thought I would end up eating sweet popcorns like in most places.
I plan to visit this place again.
midnight tickets of 25rmb - great and different way to start yor weekend
tried it on friday night with some friends and brought in our own booze and then when the movie was done we all hit the san li tn strip - great fun and different
not sure if theyd like to know about the booze part but ....
Just recently watched the new Toy Story 3 here the other day (great movie by the way). The theater is really not much different from the theaters I've been to in the U.S. Good thing is there are no seats near the front of the theater like in the US so you don't have to strain your neck looking up. You also get pre-assigned seats which might be good or bad. Sound quality and picture quality were good as well. What was weird was that they made us sign a contract promising not to damage the 3D glasses or else face a RMB 250 fine - you don't get to keep the glasses like theaters in the states. But it's really not a big deal as I usually throw mine out anyway, and hey it was only RMB 60 on Tuesday. Can't complain.
It is good idea to get member card .You can get discount on tickets , they also have discount monday to thursday. With member card you can also order tickets on the web site. My favorite is ZHONGGUANCUN ,it is clean and close to my home , but the drinks and food is expensive so you can bring your own
I was skeptical coming onto Mega Box since it smells like caramel and not popcorn, but what I got was a movie experience that was comparable to if not better than most American movie theaters. The tickets are super easy to buy even if you don't speak any Chinese, and the snack selection is very good. The actual theater is the best part--it's one of the biggest theaters I've been in, and the fact that the scree was set a little bit below the seats meant that even if you're in the front row it's still an enjoyable viewing experience. One thing I hate about American theaters is the fact that you have to crane your neck if you're in the first five rows--not here! Also, I've recently learned that there are half-priced tickets on Tuesdays, which I'm definitely going to take advantage of. The movie selection could be a little better, but if you're looking for a solid viewing experience in Beijing and a really classy theater, this is your place.
Went there on a Tuesday for the halfprice tickets. I like the selection of snacks, and the seats are decent and picture and sounds great. Can be recommended to anyone who needs a break from watching pirates DVDs on small TVs.
Most Chinese movies shown there have English subtitles, but make sure to inquire in advance before showing up.
Watched Iron Man 2 the other week at the Sanlitun location and couldn't believe how loud the sound system is for their movies. I saw people covering their ears to muffle the sound.
I like loud movies at the cinema and that's all part of the experience when you go there to watch them like that instead of at home, but this was over the top.
I would have complained to the staff but it would have fallen on deaf ears.
Sanlitun New village's Underground. You may have dinner with your friends at New village and by elevator to watch your favorite movie!
20 yuan for a member card! Then you can buy tickets at 50% off from Monday to Thursday. If you don't have the card, you just tell them your friends cell phone number (if he/she is the mumber of magabox), you will get 50% off ,too! :X
Easy to order!

I love their user-friendly website. I usually pre-order the tickets on their website. They give a pretty good deal for students, members and group. The thing is, their snack bar has limited selection of drinks/foods. so we usually smuggle some fries and chicken nuggets from McD, hehehe. By the way, havent tried the 3d. Would try the 3d for the latest Harry Potter movie. cant wait!
