Lung Wah Theatre operated during the period June 15, 1962 - December 29, 1996.  The 2011 Google photos show the theatre building remained standing at the site, and re-developments taking place nearby.  It is doubtful the building will last long, if it has not been demolished since then.

Greetings, and thanks breskvar for the feedback and the photo. I noticed that the names of some retired theatres are retained as company name when marketing sale and rental of properties at the site.  Regards, Peter

Hi There,

I believe this site had been re-purposed.  Last time I walked by it seemed to be a bar\restaurant on the ground level with something else upstairs.  That was quite a while ago.

Sorry T I was on a bus when going past it so did not have the chance to walk in and check the goings-on inside.

Hi There,

Part of the ground floor is still in used by Go Go Duck Restaurant & Bar.  There should be other shops along the longer side of the block.  Still unable to remember what's upstairs though.  Might have to go there to find out.
