光點電影院 SPOT Cinema / 1F


The original garage and generator room of the embassy housed at least two limousines. The existence of the generator was to ensure the communication between R.O.C. and the United States would not be compromised by any likely incident of power failure.
SPOT Cinema, with 83 seats overall, regularly shows six films every day from 11 am to 10 pm. This is the locus where creativity converges and interacts. Our eclectic yet unique repertoire offers the audience a new visual experience rich in content and diverse in form, and an individual taste in film watching as well.
