Cinema complex in Tsukuba You World.
The theaters have comfortable seats and lots of legroom. Theater sizes vary from 118 seats to 367 seats, and so the more popular movies, such as "Harry Potter" are put in the big theaters. The seating is on tiers that make viewing easy, so that you don't have to worry about someone's head being in the way. While the normal admission price is a bit high at Y1800 (pretty "normal" for Japan, however), there are frequent discounts available, including all seats on the first day of the month being Y1000. Seniors (60 and over) also get in for Y1000 any time, and they have a "ladies day" every Wednesday for the same price. The late shows are also cheaper, at Y1200. They likewise pass out Y200 discount coupons for you to use during your next visit, and thus if you like to go see the latest movies, you can save quite a bit if you plan ahead. If you can read Japanese, you see the timetables for the movies on their website (see Cineplex).
- Late shows (starting after 9pm) are 1200 yen.
- On the first day of every month, you can see shows for 1000 yen, and if you are a woman, you can see 1000 yen shows every Wednesday too.
- University students and high school students can get in for 1500 yen as long as they show their student card.
- JHS and elementary school kids are always 1000 yen.
- Seniors (above 60 years of age) get in for 1000 yen.
- Children below 3 get the "amazing" price of 900 yen.
If you have a discount card, I believe you (and a number of your friends, if you all pay together) can get in for 1500 yen. Note that almost all discounts are invalid for sneak preview shows (usually shown on a Saturday, one week before the show opens) and premiers.
