For the most part, the movie theaters in Seoul, South Korea are not so different from the movie theaters here. Sure, they may have assigned seating and offer dried squid as a snack (don't worry, they have popcorn too), but otherwise, it's pretty much the same experience.
Until now, that is. Given the fact that South Korea is always light years ahead of the rest of the world in terms of technology and lifestyle comforts, it makes sense that they would be the first to take movie theaters to a whole new level. Now, it's not just about the stadium seating and that pesky dried squid: It's all about recliners, gourmet food, wine, and the comforts of (a very luxurious) home.
Don't believe it? You're going to want to check out the video below, which further illustrates the message here (and really drives the message home): Korean movie theaters are awesome, and you're going to be jealous when you see just how awesome they are.
