Pengzhu Theater, known as Haoziguan Theater. Located in Dongmianhua Hutong, Jiaodaokou South Street, Dongcheng District, it is a theater transformed from a courtyard house in the Republic of China. It has a cafe, library, and exhibition hall. It is a non-profit theater with private investment. The name "Pengzhu" comes from Li Bai's poem "Looking up to the sky and laughing out of the house, are we Penghao people", I hope ordinary people can enter the theater, and the drama is free. There is an indoor library on the first floor and the open area on the second floor is suitable for taking pictures.
I have long wanted to see this arched tile, located at No.15 Dongmianhua Hutong, part of the residence of General Jilin Fengshan in the late Qing Dynasty. This house is a three-in-four courtyard house, all of which are hard-mountain-style buildings. The original gate has now been demolished and the Chuhua Gate has been converted into a house. As the second door, the brick arch is round, more than four meters high and 2.5 meters wide. The arch is hidden behind a few thin bamboos, blending into the ordinary years of firewood, rice, oil and salt.
Dongmianhua Hutong is located in Dongmianhua Hutong, Andingmennei Street, Dongcheng District, Beijing. The origin of the alley, like all hutongs in Beijing, has no time to verify it. It is just that from this Dongmianhua Hutong to east, west, south and north, Found the old homes of many celebrities. The small courtyard is a bungalow with a modern flavor. It seems to be built to imitate the frame style of a courtyard house. The roof has a guardrail and you can look far away from the railing, but you can't see far away. The surrounding buildings block the vision of going away. The old houses under the building highlight the traces of history.
Dongmianhua Hutong is located in Andingmennei Street, Dongcheng District, Beijing. It is an alley in the turn of Nanluogu Alley. The hutong is most famous for having a famous university here, which is the Central Academy of Drama at No. 39 Dongmianhua Hutong. Courtyard No. 15 was the private residence of General Fengshan in the late Qing Dynasty. It is now a cultural relics protection unit in Beijing.
From south to north, Nanluoguxiang has 8 hutongs on both east and west sides. Unlike the main street, these hutongs are unknown treasures. They are all deserted and deserted, with few pedestrians, but the living atmosphere missing in Nanluoguxiang. Dongmianhua Hutong is one of them. The little-known Dongmianhua Hutong is the third alley on the east side of the south end of Nanluogu Lane. Since the Yuan Dynasty, various businesses such as iron-making and cotton selling have been doing well in Hutong. Dongmianhua Hutong got its name because of the original cotton market. It was called here during the Ming and Qing Dynasties. Cotton alley. In 1979, to distinguish Xicheng District from Mianhua Hutong, it was renamed Dongmianhua Hutong. Soon after entering the hutong, it coincided with the end of the primary school in the hutong; a large number of parents gathered in the not spacious hutong, and it was bustling for a while. It should be the busiest time of the day in the hutong. "Mystery" hidden in the old alleys There are many courtyards hidden in Dongmianhua Hutong. Many courtyards are simple and solemn but the gates are closed, which adds a bit of mystery to Dongmianhua Hutong. Although there are no big attractions here, there is a small, deep and quiet view. Among them, at No. 15 Dongmianhua Hutong, there is the most beautiful and most elaborate Western-style brick-carved arch in Beijing. It is in the courtyard but it is beautiful and surprisingly abrupt. Courtyard No. 15 was originally part of the former residence of General Fengshan in Guangzhou at the end of the Qing Dynasty. According to legend, this person had a deep friendship with Cixi. He had stayed abroad, visited Europe, and inspected the German and Austrian new-style army, so he had a soft spot for Western culture, so he built this western-style arch in his old house. The most beautiful brick building in Beijing is said to have a huge original house, accounting for almost half of the entire hutong, and now there is only a three-door courtyard. In the early years of the Republic of China, due to the decline of the family, future generations had to divide the house for sale. Currently, No. 15 is the dormitory of the Chinese Academy of Sciences. This mansion can no longer see the glory of the year, but the brick arch that once symbolized the luxury of the mansion has been preserved; it is in sharp contrast with the living scenes of the surrounding hutong residents. This brick arch is about four meters high and more than two meters wide. It was built in the early Republic of China. The brick carvings on the arch are intricate and magnificent, which looks like a magnificent black-and-white picture from a distance, showing the depth of the craftsman's work. Looking closer, there is a stone sculpture Xumi seat under the arch, all of which are brick sculptures. The lintel of the arch is engraved with the four characters "Leaving the General and Entering the Phase". Although it is still vague and difficult to distinguish, it expresses the owner of the house at the time and his descendants Unlimited expectations for future generations to make contributions. The Dongmian Hutong from "Fengshan" to "Penghao" may be more famous than the old house of Fengshan, which is a cultural preservation building. It is at the famous Central Academy of Drama in China. You can see the sign of "Penghao Theater" when you pass by. It is China's first non-profit independent theater built by private investment. The name "Penghao" comes from Li Bai's poem "Look up to the sky and laugh and go out, how are we from Penghao". Bahao people means ordinary people. The theater is only 200 meters away from the old house in Fengshan. For nearly a hundred years, ancient and modern people have come and walk, walk and come again in this alley; from the former princes and generals to the present students, the once glorious East Cotton Hutong has gradually returned to the true colors of life. How much of the past, maybe only this extraordinary carved arch can make it clear...
