This March, the Xiqu Centre is screening a new series of comedy films to celebrate Springtime. The series features six classics starring iconic on-screen couples, including Law Kim-long and Tang Bik-wan, Yam Kim-fai and Pak Suet-sin, and Lam Ka-sing and Ng kwun-lai. From slapstick romps to romantic melodrama and action-packed battles, these crowd-pleasers have everything you need to get into the festive spirit as we welcome the season of Spring.
