Cinema History For Kids

Hong Kong Film Archive

Bring your little Kung Fu pandas for a journey into Hong Kong’s rich cinema heritage!  The Hong Kong Film Archive offers fans of Jackie Chan, lovers of Hong Kong cinema, and explorers of all ages a chance to go behind-the-scenes into the city’s film culture and history.  The archive is responsible for restoring damaged films and archival items including old celluloid films that require very special attention and safeguarding from humidity.

Where to explore?

*  History:  Explore images, information, posters, and videos on the ground floor.  Learn about Shaw Studios, the bios of the top actors and actresses of the 60’s and 70’s, and the movers and shakers behind making Hong Kong a true cinema hub.

*  Resource Center:  Located on the third floor, the public can explore the city’s collection of audiovideo material, publications, screenplays, film stills, posters, and more.  You can even reserve a private viewing booth!

*  Unique Party Venue:  Rent out the cinema (125 seats and 4 wheelchair spaces) for a very unique birthday bash!

*  Programs:  Celebrate regular screenings in the cinema including their regular “Morning Matinee” and “Restored Treasures” and the annual “100 Must-see Hong Kong Movies.”

Good news!  They will be hosting the International Children’s Film Carnival 2013 from July 5 – August 11, 2013.  Kids can explore a variety of kid-friendly flicks at the cinema in the HK Film Archive.  Hong Kong Science Museum, and Hong Kong Space Museum.  Click here for the schedule.
