Shanghai joins a mourning nation

SHANGHAI will today join the nation in showing its respects for Yushu quake victims, with all scheduled public entertainment canceled.

The only movie to be shown in the city today will be "Jing Tian Dong Di," a film based on the devastating 2008 earthquake in southwest China's Sichuan Province.

Shanghai United Cinema Line, a union of nearly all major theaters citywide, said people who already bought tickets for shows today would be refunded.

Shanghai Drama Arts Center said there would be no stage plays or shows today.

For the small screen, Shanghai Media Group, the city's television program producer, said all entertainment shows would be cancelled apart from live fund-raising events for the Yushu victims.

Meanwhile, Shanghai has dug deep to support the earthquake victims, with 150 million yuan (US$22 million) raised up to yesterday, counting both government and public contributions.

And last night the Wenxin United Press Group, publisher of Shanghai Daily, donated 2 million yuan.
