An underappreciated gem, the city’sfilm archive is free to enter and showcases and preserves everything from kung-fu movies to traditional Cantonese dramas. The resource centre is the main draw, housing more than 400,000 pieces of film-related material that can be read and viewed. Film fans who can stretch to $30 a ticket should check out the archive’s current exhibition, on until August 28, Merry-Go-Movies: Star Kids of HK Cinema in the 50s and 60s, a mix of classic Cantonese and Mandarin films featuring some of Hong Kong’s favourite child stars. Perfect for budding auteurs and young Chow Yun-fats and Anita Muis alike.
