About the CPD site tour
This CPD is a site tour for this Grade I Historic Building – State Theatre. This exhibition is curated by Culture for Tomorrow, it uncovers the legend and some of the forgotten stories of Hong Kong’s last surviving movie palace, State Theatre.
State Theatre, the 68-year-old Grade I historic site in North Point first opened in 1952 and is currently the oldest movie palace in Hong Kong. Following New World Development’s successful consolidation of its ownership, a meticulous conservation project by the company and a local and international team will soon be underway to revitalize its architecture, while also conserving the iconic, parabolic exoskeleton truss.
