Located in Pokfulam, Hong Kong, Béthanie was built by the
Missions Étrangères de Paris in 1875 and was used by them as a sanatorium for
almost a century.
This heritage building was later used by The University of Hong
Kong from 1978 to 1997, at which time it was returned to the Government.
In 2000, the Architectural Services Department commissioned a
feasibility study to investigate the restoration. In March 2003, the Legislative
Council approved capital works funds
for the Hong Kong Academy for Performing Arts to restore Béthanie and two
neighbouring Dairy Farm cowsheds as its associated campus.
Béthanie, houses two performance venues, an exhibition hall, a
chapel and a museum dedicated to Béthanie and its founders.
This site is a new landmark serving the local community and
In addition to full-time Film/TV academic activities and
part-time performing arts courses organised by the Academy, the museum is open
to the public and the chapel is used for church services and wedding ceremonies.
