Though most of the pavil­ions have now been dis­man­tled, some sur­vived and were ren­o­vated. The China pav­il­ion re­mains, of course, while the fever­ishly pop­u­lar Saudi Ara­bia pav­il­ion has been con­verted into the Moon Boat that fea­tures the world’s largest IMAX theatre – its gi­ant spher­i­cal screen mea­sures 17,000 square feet (tick­ets cost ¥60/$9.40). Other pre­served pavil­ions in­clude those from Italy, the US, France and Rus­sia. The Expo Cul­tural Cen­ter has be­come the Mercedes-Benz Arena, which broad­casts movies and hosts con­certs and large events.
