Due to overwhelming response on the announced visits scheduled on this Saturday, BSD has liaised with the organizer and agreed TWO (2) more sessions on next Sunday, 25 April 2021. Interested members may make instant registration for joining.

The visit is to explore New World’s latest immersive event: “Discover the State Theatre in All of Us”, curated by the non-profit Culture For Tomorrow. Held within the State Theatre, a Grade I historic building, this private event uncovers some of the forgotten stories of Hong Kong’s last surviving movie palace. Highlights include over 100 pieces of artefacts, oral history as told by the founder’s family, a rare poster of Bruce Lee’s final film “Game of Death”, live performances and a special State Theatre-themed playlist compiled by the renowned music critic Wong Chi-chung.

This is a farewell to State Theatre’s dilapidated state, and a chance for all of us to reminisce about its most memorable moments, before it returns in 2026.
