The Béthanie on Pok Fu Lam Road was built by the French Society of Foreign Missions in 1875 as a sanatorium for missionaries. Built in the Neo-gothic style, the Béthanie consists of 3 parts – the chapel, the sanatorium and the service wing.

After its closure in 1974, the premises were taken over by the Government and leased to The University of Hong Kong from 1978 to 1997. After completion of the restoration and conversion works in 2006, the Béthanie has become the campus of the School of Film and Television of the Hong Kong Academy for Performing Arts. Apart from the teaching facilities, the Béthanie Campus now houses 2 performance venues, an exhibition hall, a chapel and a museum.

The Béthanie was declared a monument in 2013.
