lotteLotte Cinema

The only cinema in Yangsan. They show the latest big releases (with Korean subtitles) and Korean films (without English subtitles). For showtimes in English I use the CineinKorea website (Yangsan is listed in the Gyeongsang section) (http://cineinkorea.com/movie/index.php) or for Korean you can visit http://www.lottecinema.co.kr.

Directions: The entrance to the cinema is next to exit 4 of Yangsan Subway Station. The lobby is on the 6th floor.
