This photo was captured from a 1958 Cantonese movie when the theater had just opened. Some scaffolding still remained. The movie "CAMPBELL’S KINGDOM" starring Dirk Bogarde was showing.


Date picture taken


The film "Campbell's Kingdom" was screened at the Astor Theatre between 23 and 27 February 1958. I think the white banner across the theatre building reads the "Site of Clover Hotel". The Hotel lobby was located on the 3/F of the Astor Theatre building.
