Even without seeing the theater, the signs at the junction on the right indicate it is percival street-hennesy junction looking west. Notice the sign at the top floor saying "永華湯火露" and the sign at the ground floor saying "永生(大藥行)" are the same as signs in the other picture of the same junction (https://gwulo.com/atom/32135). According to 1958 香港年鑑, headquarter of 永華藥行 is  481 hennesy road  second floor
