Hi Andrew. Just for information, the coloured photos or postcards recently posted are commercial photographs. The above photo shows the New York Cinema which stood at the junction of Hennessy Road and Percival Street. The Roxy would be further up the road. Regards.

Hi Moddsey, I realised that they had been scanned from commercial postcards, so I checked with David as to whether to include them.  He is able to delete anything that is a duplicate or not appropriate so, I ‘ll rely on him to remove images where necessary. Thanks for locating the New York cinema. I thought that it must be in Wan Chai, but couldn’t remember where.  Regards Andrew

The movie Ladykillers was released on the 8th of December, 1955 in London. So the date of this postcard would be 1956.
