Legacy Entertainment creates movie magic at Dream Bund theme park

Supplier: Legacy Entertainment

More Legacy Entertainment details
Legacy Entertainment designed Dream Bund to evoke Shanghai's iconic waterfront during the first half of the 20th Century.
Dream Bund, a new theme park and movie studio has opened its first phase in Hengdian, China.

Part of Hengdian World Studios, China's 'City of Television and Film' and one of the largest and most recognisable shooting locations in the world, Dream Bund has been specially designed to allow for both the concurrent operation of the theme park and the production of up to twenty film and television projects.

The park, which spans 280,000 sq m (3 million sq ft), is scheduled to open in phases over the next year. Its opening highlights will include the signature Trolley Tour, a museum and the Broadway Hotel, which is modelled after Shanghai's iconic Broadway Mansions building. Other areas of the park will feature detailed replicas of Nanjing Road, the Paramount Theatre and a Hutong neighborhood, as well as a number of other iconic locations.

The project was helmed by theme park and resort design firm Legacy Entertainment, who designed the park to evoke Shanghai's iconic waterfront during the first half of the 20th Century.

Barry Kemper, partner and COO at Legacy Entertainment, said: "Capturing the inherent beauty and romance of Shanghai's yesteryear was the easy part for us. Balancing the operational demands of both a movie studio and a theme park, each complex in and of itself, was not. We sincerely enjoyed our collaboration with Hengdian World Studios, as they are not only one of China's best tourism operators, but their attention to detail is second to none in the market."
