Dongducheon_Munhwa Cinema

Gate to the past

Once I enter through this door, I may forget the today that I know.




Time slip through which one travels between past, present, and future is not a fiction that can only be seen in films. Although you may not physically go back in time, you can feel the atmosphere of the time.




I checked the show times posted on the outer wall of the building and purchased a ticket, which is cheaper than that at a large-sized franchise theater, before making the entrance to find a theater straight from the 80s. I, who took my first baby step in the 90s, did not experience the culture of the times myself but it definitely seemed familiar because of numerous encounters with media that aim for the 70s and 80s generation.


The singularity of Munhwa Cinema is the fact that people select their seats on a first-come, first-served basis. If you are an early bird, you may enjoy the film from a great seat where you can put your legs on the rail in front of you. When you go up to the 2nd floor, they punch a hole through your ticket before letting you into the theater. If you purchase popcorn sold at Munhwa Cinema, you are given a bag of unpopped popcorn. Do not panic but, rather, use a microwave nearby to make freshly made popcorn and enter the theater.




When you exit from Munhwa Cinema, you find a small hot dog stand where you may alleviate your starving stomach after watching the film. The best seller of the stand is undoubtedly hot dogs. Seasoned with sweet sugar and ketchup, a delicious hot dog quickly disappeared into my belly in just a few steps. The hours of operation of Munhwa Hot Dog are decided by the old lady who runs the shop so it depends on luck of the day.
