838 Hengshan Lu
The site at 838 Hengshan Lu has been one of cinematic significance for over 50 years. First opened in 1951, it was the first cinema to be built in Shanghai after the establishment of the People' Republic of China, when 300,000RMB was pumped into its construction. The current cinema, remodelled for the Shanghai Expo in 2010, has an Art Deco facade though with a distinct Soviet flavour. The three screens, which house 700 seats, have also had a digital revamp,and are showing national releases.
