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.

    第一次來此遇到戲院老老闆熱情解說戲院與家族的歷史,並且播放月津港(現在的鹽水)歷史影片,覺得有這樣的古都歷史見證實在很有感觸。

    周圍有武廟夜市和月津港,一條線走下來,剛好一個夜晚散步的時間。已經沒在放映影片的戲院,夜晚加上燈光,氣氛浪漫。

    在月津港旁邊,原本是鎮上的戲院,現在保留當年的放映器材,海報等,變成一個懷舊的空間,踏進來就好像進入時光隧道。

    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
