Hong Kong Grand Theatre (Wan Chai) / 香港大舞台 [1958-1976]
Seating capacity: 1,243
Address: Queen's Road East, Wan Chai, Hong Kong. Hopewell Centre is the current occupant at the site.
Hong Kong Grand Theatre operated during the period May 22, 1958 - September 19, 1976, except for a temporary suspension in the early 1970s. Prior to its operation, another theatre operated at the same site, called Grand Theatre / 香港大戲院, during the period 1910-1956 - https://gwulo.com/atom/28662 and https://gwulo.com/node/38585, considered as 1st generation Grand Theatre.
Given the two years gap between the two and the difference between the two names, albeit small, and no indication of the two being operated by the same owner, the two theatres are discussed in separate place-pages.
