Information collected shows that UA Telford Theatre was closed on March 14, 2007.  The next theatre to operate at the site was Megabox and it was subsequently replaced by MCL Telford Cinema which continues to operate today.

One reader at hkfilmblog (see source below) recalls that, prior to UA Telford, there were two cinemas 環球戲院 和 宇宙戲院 (Global and Cosmo).  Separate place-pages for these two theatres, both closed on April 16, 1998, are at:

Cosmo: https://gwulo.com/node/36254

Global and Cosmo started operating in 1981 following the completion of Telford Gardens residential buildings in 1980.  Given the work required to turn the space to a 5-screen complex, UA Telford is estimated to have started operating in late 1998.
