Built in 1930, the Yau Ma Tei Theatre is the only surviving pre-war cinema building in Hong Kong. The theatre closed down in 1998 and was listed as a historic building in the same year. It has since reopened as a venue dedicated to Cantonese opera and features young up-and-coming performers. And, some of the shows come with English surtitles, so non-Cantonese speakers can also enjoy the action on stage. After your visit to the theatre, don’t miss the attractive red brick building on the opposite side of Shanghai Street, which houses the theatre’s administration offices.
