Chongqing Grand Theatre and Jiangbei District

October 2011
The Grand Theatre (重庆大剧院 - Chóngqìng dà jùyuàn) is another bright new symbol of Chongqing. It was built in 2009. To some it looks like sailing a ship, someone think it is a space base. Someday Chongqing Grand Theatre will be honored throughout the world in the same way as the Bolshoi Theatre in Moscow was honoured before the "renewal". Behind the theater is a Museum of Science and Technology, and popular with honeymooners as the background scenery for taking pictures Evangelical Church of Jiangbei.

Now a large-scale construction of the new prestigious area is going on around the theater.
