    Built in 1930, the Yau Ma Tei Theatre is the only surviving pre-war cinema building in the urban area of Hong Kong. The theatre closed down in 1998 and was listed as a historic building in the same year.

    In 2012, the building reprised its role as a place of entertainment when it reopened as a venue dedicated to Cantonese opera. Fans of the genre will be pleased to know that this intimate venue is favoured by younger up-and-coming performers. And, some of the shows come with English surtitles, so non-Cantonese speakers can also enjoy the action on stage.

    The building’s restoration was faithful to the original, making it an ideal venue to enjoy the richness and colour of traditional Chinese theatre. The building is flanked by high-rise apartments on one side and a fruit market on the other. 100-year old structure was the Engineer’s Office of the Former Pumping Station in Shanghai Street. After the pumping station ceased operation in 1911, different parts of this Water Department facility were demolished or converted for other purposes. The remaining structure was given a heritage listing in 2000.

The market is located in the area enclosed by Waterloo Road, Reclamation Street and Shek Lung Street and has been the place for fruit wholesaling in Kowloon. Although the market moved to Cheung Sha Wan Wholesale Market Complex in 1990s, many wholesalers are still operating here. The hours from 4:00am to 6:00am are the busiest of the market every day. Container lorries keep coming in and out to deliver fruits. A huge number of labourers are busy carrying fruit boxes. Piles of fruit boxes can be found everywhere in the market. It is also interesting that many wholesalers use the word “lan” (I.e. wholesale market in Chinese) as the last character of the shop name. Location filming at individual shop requires applying to the respective wholesaler.
