UA-Citygate Cinema / UA 東薈城戲院 [2000-2016]
Seating capacity: 4 screens, total 1,142.
Address: 20 Tat Tung Road, Tung Chung, Lantau Island, Hong Kong
UA-Citygate Cinema operated during the period December 2000 - September 18, 2016. [Edit: November 7, 2018: Please see update provided by reader in the discussion section below.]
UA-Citygate Cinema operated in a commercial complex called Citygate which opened for business in April 2000. It comprises a shopping centre, an office tower and a hotel. The entire complex was built on reclaimed land and was close to the fairly new Chek Lap Kok International Airport. According to the Wikipedia source, the multi-screen cinema was the first in Hong Kong with its own bar located inside the cinema.
The Wikipedia's site listed below provides a fairly up-to-date status of the complex. I believe its remote location relative to urban centres may be the factor in the recent closing of many business including the cinema. Discussions are underway (late 2016 news) among city officials and business community to rebuild the place including a new theatre.
