Everything was kept intact, the studio, production and archive buildings, as it was since 1961 (with minor changes for film conservation and more modern building equipments). Admire the huge Shaw sign in the top right corner. 

Walking in the Shaw studios, one can feel a sense of the HK cinema history.  


The Shaw Remastering center is a ward to give a new youth to old film treasures.

Films have been re-mastered for VCD and DVD editions as well as TV channel. Shaw movies constitute the cornerstone of Celestial Movie Channel which is being broadcast 24/7 in Malaysia, Brunei, Indonesia, Singapore, Hong Kong, Australia, Mainland China and Thailand.

The production building as it was in the 1960s. The film factory is there!

The remains of a once powerful movie empire have been well-maintained and everything is clean and neat.

The Shaw Studios have a cafeteria, because it's also important to eat well to fight better.

We do not know what was on the menu everyday in the 1960s and 1970s, but the cook did a good job keeping David Chiang, Ti Lung, Gordon Liu, Chen Kuan-tai and the likes sated and healthy.
