As part of our grand opening programme, we present a special screening series of some of the most iconic xiqu films produced over eight decades. 

In February, we showcase seven Cantonese opera films produced in Hong Kong between 1948 and 1962. Starring renowned stage artists like Hung Sin-nui, Sun-Ma Sze-tsang, and Kwan Hoi-san, the films are testament to their artistic talents and an exciting historical record of the intricate relationship between on-stage and on-screen personas. Also included is the award-winning documentary My Way (2011) by Hong Kong filmmaker Cheuk Cheung, offering an inside perspective chronicling the seven-year struggle of two aspiring Cantonese opera actors.
