this was one of the main cinemas showing english-speaking movies in kowloon in the 60s - i guess it got gradually killed off when a spanking-new and much bigger ocean theatre opened up just near star ferry. (good for us as one of the major shareholders' sons was a school friend and we got complimentary tickets on wednesdays 6,15 showings most weeks). one of the princess' biggest claims to fame is that it hosted the beatles' concert in 1964 when the fab 4 were on an asian tour - a bit before my time, but understand that same tour ended its last leg in a physical spate with the marcos dynasty in manila!
