AbstractThis article explains the cultural construction of facilities for the prominent role of talents converging, and found that the cinema is the heaviest typical cultural facilities to attract talents converging .Through introduced "endogenous amenity" in the "migration suitability model", this paper proves that the two key predictions, i.e., when the natural condition along with the population density falls, (1) improved the levels of endogenous amenity such as cultural facilities in the city, can attract more people to move in (causal effect);(2) the more talent populated place, the more can through improve the endogenous suitability to attract more talents (cumulative effect).On empirical, this paper, based on the sixth census data of Chinese cities ,confirmed the prediction , and by the instrumental variable method and the geographic weighting method (GWR) to overcome the endogenous and improve the robustness. The author believes that if cities want to gain advantage in the war for talent, not only carefully construct large advanced cultural facilities , also need to abandon the vulgar negative form of entertainment, as well as strengthen the construction of practical effective humanistic facilities (e.g., cinema).
