Address: 4716 Choi Hung Road, San Po Kong, Kowloon, Hong Kong, near an amusement park and across from Wong Tai Sin District Police Headquarters.  While I believe the location marker is accurate, locals could help if it needed improvement.  There is a flicker photo (source below)  showing the amusement park, Choi Hung Road and the nullah. 

Metropole Theatre operated during the period January 31, 1965 - November 1, 1982.

There was another located in North Point, Hong Kong Island also called Metropole but with a different Chinese name 都城戲院.  Its discussion is in a separate page:  https://gwulo.com/node/36986
