Exhibition leaps off the screen

Scenes from the reproduction of the film, Crow and Sparrow, which is based in old Shanghai.

The exhibit has antique cameras, giant boxes of film, as well as machines that developed films. The public will also find dresses worn by beloved film characters, and see illustrations of film makeup.

In one of the exhibition halls, audiences can watch a documentary about the history of film in China on a 28-meter U-shaped screen which surrounds the audiences from three sides.

Interactive games are also very popular with visitors. They can dub a famous scene from a classic movie in dialect, and try out the Foley equipment to produce sounds of thunderstorms, horses running and gunshots. Cameras stand on a row of desks that allow viewers to capture simple movements and turn them into a short passage of animated film.

The museum is presenting a four-dimensional edition of The Monkey King daily until the end of the year. The international-award winning animation film was created in 1965 and re-launched in 3D last year. The draft drawings, setting designs and lots of other original drawings for China's most important animation films are also on show.

The 4D technology allows viewers to experience a real tremor in explosive scenes and they will get "wet" when water splashes on the screen. The 4D cinema is also equipped with highly advanced audio system to bring a powerful cinema-going experience.
