Sunday Stories | Jackie Chan in Chinatown Did you know that Chinatown Mall in Fortitude Valley was featured as part of Jackie Chan’s movie, First Strike? The movie was shot partially in Chinatown, Fortitude Valley, and Underwater World on the Sunshine Coast between August and November 1995. The Chinatown scene featured a car chase and an explosion during which the Mall’s pagoda was destroyed and subsequently rebuilt. First Strike was a box office success in Hong Kong, when it was released in 1996. #MoBSundayStories #brisbanehistory #brisbane #thisisbrisbane #brisbanestories
