The cinema market hasn't been expanding as much as it should in Hangzhou. Except for the UME International Cineplex, which is part of a better known cinema franchise in China, all other movie venues in the city are locally managed. But to accommodate for the growing needs of movie goers in the city, cinemas in Hangzhou have been adding to their service, bringing in better equipment and offering discount tickets to attract customers. There are also some movie cinemas that have been trying to appeal to the upper-end customers by offering deluxe theater viewing experiences for better enjoyment of blockbusters.
