Ming Sing Theatre starting operating in 1927 (or about) until June 1, 1971. A fabric curtain separated the small front lobby and the seating area.  A small concrete staircase to the upper level was at the front of the building.  The front row seats were very close to the screen but other than this one experience, I watched some memorable movies one of which was a drama from a chapter in the Romance of the Three Kingdoms.   Ming Sing Theatre closed on June 1, 1971.
