Cinema in Stardew Valley: how to open, buy tickets and snacks

Cinema in Stardew Valley

Stardew Valley replete with unique and interesting content. There's a rich plot and sense of community here, as well as plenty of post-plot activities. In this guide, we'll take a look at the cinema.

The cinema, available in the late game, replaces the JojaMart store, and in order to access it, you need to either complete the Joja storyline or choose to rebuild the Club. Once the cinema opens, you will be able to invite villagers to watch movies with you. But first, let's find out how to unlock the cinema.

How to open a movie theater in Stardew Valley

To unlock the cinema, you will need to complete club missions. Once the club is completed, JojaMart will move out of its building, leaving it derelict.

When you enter the abandoned building, you will see a small sign that says "Missing Bundle". This the last set in the game that you will need to collect.

Once the knot is ready, Junimo will rebuild an abandoned building into a cinema.

If you decide to follow the JojaMart storyline and turn the club into their warehouse, you can still get the cinema.

By paying 500 gold, you can turn the building into a cinema.

How to Buy a Cinema Ticket in Stardew Valley


Once the cinema is unlocked, you can start watching movies in it. To enter the cinema you will need in advance acquire ticket. Tickets sold in front of the entrance, in the window on the right side.

One ticket costs 1000 gold. You can go to the movie alone, or invite one of the residents of Pelican City with you.

If you are planning to go to the cinema together, don't forget to buy two tickets.

After you have purchased a ticket, give it to the resident you want to watch the movie with. Then go to the cinema on the same daywhen you gave away the ticket.

If you miss a day, the resident will forget about the invitation and not go to the cinema.

You can purchase more tickets for future use, but do not give them to any of the inhabitants if you do not plan to go that day.

Movies available at Stardew Valley Cinema


The cinema shows eight different films. These films have been running for two years. and open gradually, at different times.

What movie will be available first, depends on the season in which you unlock the cinema.

So, if the cinema is built in the spring, then the first film will be "Brave little sprout", but if it opens in the fall, the first film will be The Mysterium.

There are two different posters hanging outside the cinema. The poster on the left corresponds to the movie that is on this week.right - a film that is scheduled to be shown next week.

Residents of the city have their own preferences for different films, these preferences fall into three categories: likes, likes or dislikes. When you invite a villager to watch a movie they love, you will earn 200 friendship points. If you only like the movie, you will receive 100 friendship points. However, even if you watch a movie with a resident that he/she doesn't like, it still won't affect the character's friendship points in any way.

Movie Theater Tips for Stardew Valley


Going to the cinema with a resident works a little differently than giving gifts. You can give a gift to a character twice a week, with the score reset every Sunday. This means that you can give gifts on Friday and Saturday, and then again on Sunday.

Joint trips to the cinema have a longer “pause” period. If you invite a villager to the cinema, he will not want to go there again for seven days. Try to alternate who you invite to the movies. Also note that Krobus doesn't go to the movies on Fridays.
