Isis Theatre / 新都戲院 [1966-1999]
Seating capacity: 1 screen, 1,183.
Address: 47 Moreton Terrace, Causeway Bay, Hong Kong. Evangelical Free Church of China Tung Fook Church is the current occupant at the site.
The origin of the English name "Isis" is a mystery. Isis was not a familiar word for probably most Hong Konger's. Perhaps the owner thought it would apeal to Westerners who knew about Middle East history and religion like the ancient Eygptian goddess. The Chinese name 新都 literally means new capital. Of course, there are other theatres in Hong Kong where their English and Chinese names have different translation or message.
Isis Theatre operated during the period December 24, 1966 - October 1, 1999.
