The former Art Deco (with touches of neo-classical) Nanking Theatre, one of several Western-style movie houses built during the European occupation of the city in the 1920’s and 1930’s. The Nanking Theatre was opened on 25th March 1930 with Glenn Tryon in “Broadway”. It had 1,539-seats in orchestra & balcony levels. In 1950 it was re-named Beijing Cinema. In 1959 it became the Shanghai Concert Hall used for concerts and special performances.
Due to heavy traffic noise, the entire theatre was moved several yards away from the road in 2005. It was renovated in 2020.
