Introduce

Yongcheng Theater (永成戲院) originally opened for business in 1945, but in fact its forerunner was not even a theater. Rather it was run by Mr. Huang Zhi (黃直先生) as the Yongcheng Rice Mill (永成碾米廠). During the Japanese Colonial era, the Huang Family Rice Mill was in a long-term co-operative relationship with the Japanese government, and it built up an extensive network of contacts amongst government officials and merchants. As such, business flourished. The rice mill felt the effects of World War II and the Japanese withdrawing to Japan, and it suffered serious losses; ceasing to exist in its old state as a rice mill. Mr. Huang Zhi at this point took the steps to transform the site into a theater. After changing its status, it became a mingling spot for politicians, businessmen, and celebrities from around the Yanshui(鹽水) area. As well as showing movies and films, it would also sometimes feature theater troupes. It would be quite possible to say that at that time it was the grandest of theaters within the Yanshui area. However, as times changed, Yongcheng Theater went out of business in 2000, and it was only after renovation by Tainan City Government that the stage curtain, cypress chairs, and old film equipment could be brought back to a fit state, and over the New Year Festival it once again began to show films. As well as film showings, there are also art installations related to cinema, and it should not be missed on a trip to Yanshui.

    電影院周圍有許多的拍片小道具可以提供遊客體驗,電影院內所有的裝潢海報都是非常貼近40年上演的實況,非常有感覺,最後電影院內有賣美味的冰淇淋,物美價廉,請大家一定要嘗試一下喔

    リノベーション工事が終わり綺麗になりました。塩水区に行ったら是非訪ねてみましょう。日本人にも懐かしい施設になっています。

    塩水と言えばロケット花火祭りが有名ですが街の中にも見所があります。正門路の天主堂、中山路の八角楼などを見たら是非この永成戲院にも立ち寄って下さい。こちらは日本時代は精米工場で戦後は映画館だったそうですが荒れていたそうです。その建物をリノベーションしたものですが懐かしさが漂いいい感じです。台湾の方は日本時代の日本の建物の修復が上手です。更に日本時代の映写機なども大切に保存してあり日本人は日本再発見ができます。今は映画、演劇、歌などのイベントに使用されているようですがいつでも見学出来ます。中山路から康楽路を親水公園に南下すると左側が水正里です。李小龍(ブルースリー)のポスターを見ていると昔、台南で路上映画を見ていた頃を思い出し精米所を映画館に変えた時代の映画への情熱が感じられます。次はどんな時代になり、どんな施設に変身するのか楽しみにしています。

    來到鹽水觀賞元宵燈會,那天中午在點心城吃完中飯後,來到後方的永成戲院,很訝異於在鹽水小鎮還有個修復及保存如此完整的戲院,裡頭除了放樣免費電影、展示一些具歷史意義的電影文物、還有販賣古早味的竽冰,是個有趣、溫暖的好去處。
