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 January, to accompany our Grand Theatre opening performance of The Reincarnation of Red Plum – the acclaimed production by Hong Kong’s legendary 1950s stars Yam Kim-fai and Pak Suet-sin – we present three Cantonese opera films showing the magical Yam-Pak chemistry on screen.
