“From movie screen to Taiwan opera stage”
Reviewed 14 July 2014

The Shenping theatre was the first cinema in Taiwan, opened in 1914 to provide the miners in Jiuofen and Jinguashi some entertainment. It was rebuilt in 1934 and 1961. After becoming a ruin for many years, it was reconstructed in 2011. Now you can see how the miners enjoyed the show with live translations of silent movies. Occasionally there are performances of a Taiwan opera group.

“May know more if can get in”
Reviewed 10 November 2012

Couldn't get in when we were there in Sept 2012. Small construction sites right in front of the theater at that time.

“You've got to know about the past!”
Reviewed 5 April 2012

If you know nothing about the past here. You'll feeling an old, small area here only! But it's really a spot to stay for a while there when it's your first time to visit Chiufen.
