Universal Theatre / 民樂戲院 [1967-1995]
Seating capacity: 1,131
Address: 50A, Bowring Street, Tsim Sha Tsui, Kowloon, Hong Kong. While this may be the official address, please note that Google Maps places the theatre at the southwest corner of Bowring-Shanghai intersection. Fortunately, other references in the sources listed below, particularly the two photos in flickr.com, confirm the true location on the southeast corner of Bowring-Kwun Chung intersection.
Universal Theatre operated during the period January 1, 1967 - March 4, 1992. After its closing, a mini theatre called New Universal 新民樂戲院 with seating capacity of 151 operated from June 1993 to February 1995; and this is considered part of the total operating period.
