​Ying Wah Theatre was the first to operate at the site.  It had total seating capacity of 1,454 consisting of 990 on lower level and 464 on upper level.  It started operating on February 8, 1967 until sometime in late 1980s or early 1990s when it was renamed Ritz Theatre which subsequently closed on August 8, 2005.
