"Red culture" consists of "red legacies" and "red spirit" that have developed over the course of China's revolution, construction, and reform under the leadership of the Communist Party of China (CPC) to achieve national independence, economic growth, cultural prosperity, and national rejuvenation. The former is represented by historical sites.
Huaxia Film Museum focuses on collecting and repairing classic films, as well as on the technological development of motion picture techniques, and currently houses more than 200,000 collections, including film projectors, film copies, film scripts, and posters.
