I'd like to let you know another good theater in Seoul-Cine Code Seonjae. It is located at Anguk station, line 3, exit 1. It is showing 'Cherry blossom - Hanami' and 'Nothing but ghosts'-both are German films- now. I read your lists, I think U may like the films that are usually released in Seonjae. Anyway I hope you already knew it or you can find it out through the internet.
