Korean Cinema to Open in Los Angeles

2010/06/09 | 1650 views | Permalink | Source

The first cinema dedicated to Korean films will open in Los Angeles this Friday. Located at the Madang Courtyard in Koreatown, CGV LA has a seating capacity of 600 and three screens, with at least one of them to show Korean films all the time.

To mark its opening, CGV LA invited Hollywood insiders to a preview of a selection of Korean films, including "Blades of Blood", "The Servant", "Secret Reuniom" and "Take Off".

The multiplex cinema will select a roster of Korean films, which will be screened with English subtitles. Non-Korean films will be shown with Korean subtitles. The facility will also be used for events such as independent film screenings and music showcases.

CGV LA expects the cinema to help more Korean films make inroads into the U.S. With nearly 95 percent of the market currently dominated by Hollywood movies, CGV sees potential for Korean films there. "Rather than focusing on immediate profitability, we'll make efforts to introduce Korean films and contents", CGV said.
