​Address:  Bulkeley Street, Hung Hom, Kowloon, Hong Kong.  Hing Bank Building is the current occupant at the site.  The theatre was located either at the northeast corner of the Gilles Avenue South - Bulkeley Street intersection, or, more likely, the northwest corner of the Bulkeley - Kun Yam intersection.

​Information collected thus far reveals only general information including its address.  One source listed below states that it was opened some time in the early 1950s, and it was closed in July 1970.  The Hunghom Wing Lok Theatre Company Ltd. was incorporated on March 28, 1952 and its date of dissolution was February 14, 1975.  Hence, one may assume that the theatre took about a year to build which would put its opening date sometime in 1953.
