Set on the first floor of a three-storey lane house, the space is lined with tables, bookshelves, and a kiosk for drinks.

    Tucked at the end of the alley at the junction of Anfu Lu and Wukang Lu is the Film Book Café, a small bookshop dedicated to the art of film. Set on the first floor of a three-storey 1930s house, the central space is lined with bookshelves, several tables and a kiosk serving drinks. The bookstore offers a small but concise selection related to the genre, from film history to novels of movie adaptations to filmmaker biographies. Off to one side is a small room dedicated to rare film journals and tomes, some for in-house reading only; a second room is dedicated to film-related events or screenings. The majority of the books are in Mandarin, although you may find a handful of photobooks in English. They stock cute film-themed enamel pins, bags, and bookmarks that make for thoughtful souvenirs and gifts. While the shop gets its share of visitors during the weekend, weekdays are calm enough to snag a seat along the bar-stool seating area facing the window, perfect for people-watching. Don’t miss the old film projector at the end of the corridor and the friendly bookstore cat that falls asleep on random chairs around the shop.
