Hong Kong’s premier independent cinema
Hong Kong’s only arthouse cinema, Broadway Cinemathèque is the city’s go-to destination for international indie works and film festivals. Aside from film showings, the Yau Ma Tei venue also offers retrospective programmes delving into the oeuvres of legendary filmmakers like François Truffaut, Yamada Yoji and Krzysztof Kieślowski, introducing cinema luminaries to younger audiences to develop a new generation of cinephiles.
The cinema’s Kubrick Café (no prizes for guessing who inspired that name) is also a pleasant spot in which to relax. The café’s multilingual selection of books and magazines is perfect for an afternoon of slow browsing.
A tidy bonus: Broadway Cinemathèque is just a five minute stroll away from the famous Temple Street Night Market.
