On Monday December 14, China Heaven Creation officially took over the White House Theater in Branson, Missouri, the United States. “It is the very first time that a Chinese cultural enterprise successfully bought a U.S. theater, and is a major achievement of Chinese culture ‘stepping outside,’” said Xinhua.
China Heaven Creation (CHC), according to its website, was “founded in 1999 with the backing of China Travel Service HK Ltd and the approval of the Ministry of Culture. In 2005, CHC was selected by the Ministry of Culture as the National Model Base for the Culture Industry.”
