An assortment of projects including movies, Peking Operas, and even animations have been churned out. They all pay tribute to that particular slice of history and history-makers.

Sources from the State Administration of Radio, Film and Television have confirmed that the movie "The Founding of a Party" will be released in China on June 15th.

The final version of the movie is over two hours long.

A total of 108 A-list actors appear in the movie. The magnitude of the cast is one of the largest in the history of Chinese movie-making.

Directed by Huang Jianxin, the movie is a chronicle of events from 1911 to 1921 that led to the founding of the Communist Party of China.

The cast and crew traveled far and wide to detail the early days of China's communist pioneers and other key historical figures.

A revised version of the modern Peking Opera "Ying Shan Hong" was staged at the Shanghai Oriental Art Center on Monday. Created by the Shanghai Peking Opera Company, the play debuted to rave reviews a decade ago.

More poetic touches have been added to this new edition, which also features more graceful arias inspired by folk songs.

China's booming animation industry has also contributed to the 90th anniversary. The cartoon movie titled "Xibaipo" goes on public release on Tuesday.
