Nanshan Theater 湳山戲院

Outside Nanshan Theater
The vintage exterior of Nanshan Theater near Tonghua Night Market in Taipei.

Recently I’ve been mapping dozens of old school movie theaters in Taiwan, most of them abandoned, so it is a little surprising to chance upon one still in operation in my daily travels. Where others have vanished, Nǎnshān Theater 湳山戲院 remains, an old school second-run theater hidden along a small street near Tonghua Night Market in Dà'ān District 大安區, Taipei 台北.
