The Spot cinema is an art house cinema in Taipei, with two locations – one in Huashan 1914 Creative Park and the other near Zhongshan MRT.
Both have two screens and show a variety of art house and slightly more commercial films. The one near Zhongshan shows artier films than the Huashan cinema but both show a good selection of world films.
Both sets of screens have good audio/visual quality, and they have subtitles for some non-English films.
The seating in Zhongshan is a lot more comfortable than the one in Huashan but neither have food and drinks options.
Huashan has a very good multi-ticket deal. You can purchase a book of 10 tickets from their ticketing booth for only NT$1,900, which is a saving of NT$70 per ticket. These are valid for a full year too.
- Good film choices
- One cinema convenient for Huashan
- Seats not very comfortable in Huashan
- You’ll have to buy drinks and snacks from somewhere else
