Movie Theaters in Saigon

Submitted by tomo on September 11, 2010 - 7:56pm

Does anybody aggregate movie theater show times for Ho Chi Minh City? Here's where I get my information, from disparate sources on poorly designed Vietnamese websites:

Cinebox
212 Lý Chính Thắng, Q.3 (near Kỳ Đồng)
240 Đường 3/2, Quận 10 (Hòa Bình, huge place)
http://www.cinebox.vn/index.php?page=schedule&step=1

Galaxy
116 Nguyễn Du, Q.1,
230 Nguyễn Trãi, Q.1
246 Nguyễn Hồng Đào, Q.Tân Bình
http://www.galaxycine.vn/?cine=calendar&search=cinema

Megastar
Hung Vuong Plaza
CT Plaza

And then there's always free movies at:
Bobby Brewers
45 Bui Vien, P.Pham Ngu Lao. Q.1
86 Pham Ngoc Thach, Q.3
306/8 Nguyen Thi Minh Khai, Q.3
179 Tran Huy Lieu. Q.PN

Idecaf - The French cultural center shows movies on an irregular basis, usually on Saturdays and another day in the afternoon. They are French movies with subtitles and can actually be good movies and cheaper than seeing blockbuster Hollywood films at the other theaters.

Down the street from Idecaf on Thai Van Lung Street is a place called FaFim but I've never been there nor do I know anyone who has. It may be closed. Their website needs to be updated. FaFim

And if you want to stay home and watch movies on HBO, Cinemax, or Star Movies, you can find some schedules online below if you can navigate Vietnamese a bit (or use Google translate, which works okay on Vietnamese):

HBO
Cinemax
Star Movies

Nice, Dan! Didn't realize TPL did your own projects, esp targeted at the local market. A quick one-off maybe?

Btw, I know some people who may want to chat about SGN Places.
