Well you are correct. But if 18 Mins + the walking distance, I believe living in Wanchai or Causeway Bay is still comparably closer, right? And timesaving too.
The suggestion of visiting Broadway Cinematheque (Yau Ma Tei) is because he is a film lover, who want to go to cinema, talk and sharing with others, but it is of course good to have a decent home cinema system too.
Nevertheless, let's shared our opinions and I am sure Filmlover will make a good decision.
Thank you for this, I will definitely need to look for apartments in that area then (Yau Ma Tei).
I would prefer larger apartments though - I was viewing some last week while in Hong Kong and as someone who likes to stay indoors and watch a film on a Sunday afternoon find it difficult to do that in such a cramped setting without it impacting one's mental health over the long term.
That sounds good, and I'm not really the night life type of person - with the exception of attending events (e.g. art gallery exhibitions or trips to the cinema) I would expect my evenings to be spent relaxing and watching a film. A larger apartment would definitely be preferable.
even though i live in fanling, my father in law lives in hung hom bay, i have actually driven to the elements the grand cinema on the basis that it was the best cinema in HK (in my opinion) especially with it's 128 channel dolby atmos, but i am wondering yau ma tei's Broadway Cinematheque, is it good?
i recall once, went to crap cinema which spoilt the film, it was tst golden harvest and it was full price, the screen as big as bright as 14" tv, sound sounds like mono, cheap US$100 bluetooth speaker and non gradient seating
Yeah, then go for the Yau Ma Tei units. Maybe try to look Hunghom and other areas too as you could compare and make a decision,
Find something near to MTR station could allows you to visit other places easily like museums (TST, Shatin) and art centre(Wanchai) etc. As you mentioned you like to attend exhibition etc, one more suggestion, the Tai Kwun in Central.
