    • Editor's Description
      This historic theater way up in Hongkou was once a temple, then it was Chinatown, now it's available for events and the odd piece of theater. It's a really beautiful old space with a gallery and boxes. It's got a real feeling of history in the wood, but the management have done a good job turning it into a modern venue. It's a bit out of the way, but don't let that put you off if there's something going on here, it's good to head out to this often-overlooked part of town. Lots of inexpensive Chinese restaurants on the same street, too.
