CHONGQING (CQNEWS) -- Chongqing has a steady relationship with movies. According to incomplete statistics, since the 1930s, over 200 movies have been made in Chongqing, in the genres of science fiction, literary and stories. Nowadays, Chongqing has another place suitable for making movies – Baixiang Street Movie Base.
In fact, Baixiang Street represents the culture of Chongqing. There was a saying that “Baixiang Street of Chongqing [is] like New York of the United States, and Chongqing people are proud of it.” It is said that, in the Southern Song Dynasty, Yu Wangjie, Military Commissioner of Sichuan and magistrate of Chongqing, established a talent recruitment office for recruiting personnel against Mongolia. In 1886, Chongqing established the earliest wire telegraphy bureau. Since Chongqing opened as a commercial port in 1891, the UK, the US, Japan and other countries established foreign firms in Chongqing, forming the famous “Financial Street”. Moreover, such celebrities as Li Yaoting, Lu Zuofu, Song Yuren, Xiao Chunv and Lao She once stayed in Chongqing.
