Kam Tin Theatre / 錦田戲院 [1966-1970]
Seating capacity: Sources listed below give two different capacities, 747 and 800.
Address: Source documents listed below state that the theatre has been replaced by a supermarket (惠康超級市場), and a recent local government document on summary of meeting related to water quality issued from its office with this address but no street number (Kam Tin Theatre Building, Kam Tin Road, Yuen Long, N.T.). With these two pieces of information, Google Maps has located the former theatre at 131 Kam Tin Road, Kam Tin, New Territories, Hong Kong.
Kam Tin operated during the period January 20, 1966 - late 1970s. For the purpose of this page, the closing month is estimated to be November.
