The Red Theater offers Vegas style Kung fu entertainment, complete with fog, requisite lights and bombastic music.
Situated in Chongwen in Beijing, the Red Theater is a small theater which was known as the Chongwen Worker’s Cultural Palace Theater. It has undergone extensive renovations and has improved stage amenities.
Presently, this theater specializes in traditional Chinese performances like the “The Legend of Kung Fu”. This is one interesting place to visit in Beijing.
I have been there three years ago. I loved it as much as the first time. It's a great show. However, beware of taxis there. They try to squeeze every yuan out of you. Walk far away from the venue... more to take a taxi with meter. Do not give in into these crooks and make a precedent. If you wish to be more comfortable do it with a tour, however it is much more expensive. We waited 15 to get a taxi in front of the venue and shared with someone from our hotel. The hotel usually takes you there for free, but you have to make your own way back. It is worth it though as the show is amazing, I just love it. Enjoy!
