Permanent exhibition: In Memory of Queen's Theatre
Exhibition opens on 20/3/2008
Venue: Lobby, G/F. Hong Kong Film Archive
Memory of the exciting times of visiting grand cinemas llike the Queen's Theatre reigns in the minds of many. But gone are those days of anxious anticipation for films like Gone with the Wind or A Streetcar Named Desire.
After the closure of the Queen's on the 30th September 2007, the Hong Kong Film Archive is glad to acquire as donation a very precious 35mm Ashcraft carbon arc-lamp projector from the cinema. This heavy-weight archival item, together with valuable visual materials, will be on display at the lobby of the Hong Kong Film Archive in March.
