I’m not sure when it will be open or if I’ll ever be able to visit…
but it’s neat as I am one of the English voices at one of Movie Town’s theme parks in China!
You know, when you hear the park spiels like,
“Please keep your hands and feet inside the vehicle at all times”
Or “Please exit to the doors on your left”
The phrases are a little bit different at these theme parks, but the same general idea.
More info on one of their parks in Haikou…
Located next door to Mission Hills in Longhua district, Haikou, Movie Town’s streets mimic the appearance of old movie sets.
Established in 2011, the tourism spot integrates tourism, business and filmmaking. It is named after Feng Xiaogang, a world-renowned Chinese director. The town covers an area of 930,000 square meters and consists of 1942 Street, Socialism Street, South China Sea Street, and more. Its buildings imitate the style of the Republic of China era. It also includes theaters, restaurants, shops, and special performances.
1942 Street features settings from Feng’s movie “Back To 1942”, with period-architecture from the streets of Chongqing as the backdrop. It houses 91 buildings with different architectural styles from the period, creating a rich and authentic atmosphere.
