A new movie theatre, Golden Scene Cinema, has rolled out the red carpet in Kennedy Town.

Opened by local film distributor Golden Scene, the four-house cinema—located at the intersection of Catchick Street and North Street—will screen movies from Hong Kong-made productions to art films to international blockbusters.

It’s the first movie theatre in the city’s Western district, which while home to hundreds of cafes and independent shops, has less to offer in the way of traditional entertainment.

The cinema’s opening kicks off with showings of “The Way We Keep Dancing,” a local film about hip hop culture set against the backdrop of a gentrifying town. Also on the list are Disney Pixar animation “Soul” and a Taiwanese romance flick, “My Missing Valentine.”

The theatre also has snack kiosks with local street food like siu mai (steamed park and shrimp dumpling) and yu dan (fishball), as well as local handcraft beer, according to HK01.

“With the new cinema, I hope to offer more choices to the local audience and that they can, like me, have a space to dream a little while immersing themselves in movies,” Winnie Tsang, founder of Golden Scene, told Hong Kong Tatler.
