King's Theatre via Cinema Treasures written by Raymond Lo.
demolished 1964, according to govt records office: http://www.grs.gov.hk/PRO/imgroot/365-1-131/l2174-19.jpg
Here are the dates Raymond Lo quotes in his notes on the Cinema Treasures website:
Do you think the GRS has the wrong date on its photo, or maybe the cinema closed in 62, but wasn't demolished and re-built until 64?
OldTimer posted a photo for this theatre in 1931 without the tag.

Thanks breskvar for the reference. Regards, Peter
For quick reading of this page, it is repeated here King's: Theatre = 娛樂戲院
Another jog to the old memory - it was 1961/1962 and I watched Elvis Presley in “BLUE HAWAII” at this cinema.
In fact I loved it so much I watched it 8 times! But not all at once but a couple of Sat afternoons and matinees. I think it cost about HK$1.20 to sit downstairs, in those days!
