OMG! Free entry! Being a movie buff and a neighbor (I live nearby), I thought there would be good to pay for a visit. You know the local film industry was at a peak in the 80s. There must be a lot to show… Oh...More

This should only be visited by people with a very serious interest in cinema that borders on the academic. It's more like a scholarly institute without much to show to the public. It's not really a museum. There are movie screenings and an exhibit of...More

The place is small and comes with a small cinema showing mainly old movies. It is easy getting there using MTR. Get off at the Sai Wan Ho Station and take Exit A. Walk towards the sea and in 15 minutes, you are there. The...More
