The Globe (Shek Kong Camp) [1952-1996]
Address: Kam Tin Road, Shek Kong Camp, Shek Kong, Hong Kong
Cinema Treasures provided an interesting write-up about this remotely-located theatre, as follows: "The Globe was a neighbourhood cinema for the Royal Air Force and their families living in the Shek Kong Camp in the New Territories. The Shek Kong Camp with an airfield and barracks, etc., was built in the early-1950s and was the only (*see note below) air base of the Royal Air Force in the British Colony in Hong Kong before 1st July, 1997..... The Shek Kong Camp formally closed in November 1996, and the theatre became a property of the People's Liberation Army stationed in Hong Kong SAR"
[Edit Feb 20, 2017: The seating capacity is estimated to be about 100. Credit goes to David and Fred for the correct photo.]
[*Edit Feb 27, 2017: Reader Tideswell27 has pointed out that the RAF also had a base at Kai Tak International Airport prior to 1997.]
For the purpose of this page, the operating period is estimated to be from 1952 to November 1996.
