Resided next to Broadway Cinematheque, a small four-houses cinema block which features numbers of film festivals and shows many unconventional art films, kubrick determines to be one of the best film bookstore and discstore in town. kubrick might as well be located next to one of the oldest buildings, the Fruit and Vegetable Wholesale Market in Yau Ma Tei, and kubrick takes more concerns on our local culture. While our predecssor, P.O.V Bookstore (focuses on gender and film book) closed, we follows their steps on November, 2001. In our early years, we have already been launching talks and workshops with local writers and film makers. Though we do not have much space, we try to faciliate our place for anything possible. In the summer of 2007, we had our first taste of kubrick friday live, which is a music programme we work hand in hand with local and foreign musicians inside our bookstore.
kubrick is not only a bookstore, but also a publisher since 2003. Over 30 titles of books reaching from gender to social concern have been published and the number are still up and running. We also have our discstore and movie memorabilia shop inside the Cinematheque, and we strive to accquire the best art film dvds, soundtrack, movie posters and indie music cds from all over the world.
Our cafe might not be the best restaurant in town, but definitely one of the energetic cafe shop which you can relax for an afternoon with a cup of fine coffee and some little treats. Besides Yau Ma Tei, kubrick also have a tiny shop in Kwun Tong apm. This shop is chiefly the paradise of the handmade accessories from local and foreign artists.
Besides Hong Kong, now there are kubrick shops in Beijing, Hangzhou, and Chongqing. Find us while you visit there!
