The Great Star

The Great Star
We're here inside of the Great Star Theater in the darkness, just around the corner from Grant Avenue where we can find the former Mandarin Theater as well. Both of these theaters started out showing Cantonese opera and switched to showing movies. But the Great Star here is the only place in Chinatown where you can still occasionally catch a Cantonese opera or a movie screening. Back in the 1960s, it came under the ownership of the Shaw brothers from Hong Kong and they're probably most famous for creating the world's first Kung Fu movie, The Five Fingers of Death.
