Hong Kong Cultural Centre
Hong Kong Cultural Centre sits on the waterfront next to Tsim Sha Tsui Star Ferry Terminus, a close neighbors of Hong Kong Space Museum, Avenue of Stars, Hong Kong Museum of Art and Harbour City. Between the center and the pier stands the historic Clock Tower built in 1915, the Cultural Center was set up by the Urban Construction Council and is administered by the Leisure and Cultural Services Department of Hong Kong Government. It is a grand local center for a variety of cultural activities and tours.
The center was opened to the public on November 8th, 1989. At the opening Ceremony the British Crown Prince Charles and Princess Diana were invited to the ceremony and declared it open. The design of the center is unique. It looks like a boomerang with a sloping roof, simple and easily recognizable. The building was designed by the Architectural Services Department of Hong Kong. There are no windows implying the performances inside are judged by the audience themselves.
Occupying an area of 5.2 hectares (12.8 acres), Hong Kong Cultural Center boasts three main performance halls, including the Concert Hall, Grand Theatre, Studio Theatre, Exhibition Gallery, Exhibition Area, Rehearsal and Practice Rooms, conference room, souvenir store and restaurant.
