Image Museum of Hsinchu City Image Museum is located between East Gate and Hsinchu Municipal Government Hall. It was called Yu-Le House during the Japanese Occupational Era. When it was opened for use in 1933, it became the first luxury theater with air-conditioners in Taiwan. The building was structured with a combined style of classical Roman and Arabian architecture. Yu-Le House was renamed as National Theate after the restoration and held activities such as concerts and operas besides showing movies; It became an outstanding landmark full of the citizens life memories in an agricultural society with simple recreational style. It also became a representative public building heading into the modernized society. The theater was closed down and went into history in 1991. After the activity Wind City Affection (Feng Cheng Ching Po) was held in the square of the idle National Theater in 1996, many local dignitaries and movie scholars began to run the errands and do the planning. The reconstruction plan of reuses of historical buildings was under the charge of the architect Chih-Cheng Lin. Consequently, Image Museum of Hsinchu City was completed and opened officially on May 21, 2000.
