Lin Shih-jung (林士榮), owner of the Taiwan Studio Culture City, said the event aims to give back to society. Up to three members of each mid- or low-income family can enter the studio for free on Sept. 19. The studio will also lend out period movie costumes for people to use in photos.
Remembering his own modest childhood, Lin said he decided to encourage people with sizable living pressures by showing a place where they can witness the heartland of the Taiwanese movie industry and simply enjoy a good day.
Although morality is in decline and “utilitarianism” is rising, the Taiwan Studio Culture City hopes it can express the ideal of gratitude through this event, Lin said.
The studio is the largest in Taiwan. It encompasses 35 hectares of mock 1930s to 1960s buildings and scenes.
