Overview

Known as the “Hollywood in Shanghai,” it was where the renowned Chinese movie studios, including Lianhua, Diantong, Xinhua, Kunlun, Wenhua, Haiyan, and Tianma, were successively born from the 1930s. On November 16, 1949, the Shanghai Film Studio was established here, which would become one of the three largest film production centres in China. Shanghai Film Museum was opened to the public in June, 2013 on the former site of the Shanghai Film Studio. Covering a total exhibition area of 15,000 m2, the museum is a major showcase of China’s film production that features integrated functions of display and interactive visiting experience, serving the needs of archival collection, academic research and public education.

Comprehensive film museum focusing on early Chinese film history. Offers some general (technical) movie background, but one should bring interest in Chinese film. Good English audio guide available.

This is a huge space, several floors of glossy animated exhibits, screens and noise which many visitors will love. English translations for most exhibit descriptions. However for those interested in the technical detail this was a frustrating visit. An impressive selection of period movie projectors,...More

Not a dull moment (or exhibit) in this museum. You can easily spend a day here (as did we), all for about $10 U.S., and free for seniors. 99% of the exhibits, displays and even film excerpts have both Chinese and English captions/explanations. Convenient to...More

West of Shanghai’s better-known business, cultural and
entertainment centers, lies an expansive area of
residential neighborhoods peppered with lifestyle
pockets that have their own unique attractions. The
schools have formed pockets of international
communities throughout Gubei, Hongqiao and Minhang.
Quite a few entertainment and shopping centers have
built up over the years to cater to these communities.
