Fan of President Theatre

“I’m a huge fan of the movies. I go to the cinema at least once a week and the President Theatre is really my favourite place to go. I guess it all comes from when I was young, and my dad used to bring me here. I think the first film he brought me to watch here was Toy Story, and that was the film that got me hooked. I must have watched hundreds of movies here since then.

When the cinema closed down, I was quite sad because the other cinemas in Hong Kong just don’t have the same kind of character. But I remember I was really delighted when I heard it was reopening. Even though it’s been refurbished, there are still elements of the original cinema here and it really brings back my childhood memories. I hope this historic cinema will stay here for decades to come, and one day I’ll be able to bring my kids here too.”
