This morning, Paul, Bailey, Josh, and I went to see Kung Fu Panda 2. The movie going experience in China is different than the United States. When we got to the theater and ordered our tickets, they had us choose our seats and "assigned" them to us on the ticket. When we got into the actual theater, there were no advertisements. I never liked advertisements back in the United States, but the 10 minutes we sat waiting for the movie to start definitely seemed longer than the actual 10 minutes. The nice thing though was that the movie actually started ON TIME! 10 am means 10 am here. There were no trailers for other movies, and the movie was in English with Chinese subtitles. Very nice. The 3d glasses were also a step up from the generic "Real 3d" ones back in the states. And they do not charge you for them here. They provided us with high quality 3d glasses at no extra charge, but we could not keep them. It was quite the experience and the movie was very good!
