[...] It was built on the site of the previous Po Hing Theatre. "Po Hing", meaning "celebrations all over the world", is the Cantonese prounciation of its Chinese name.

The theatre opened to business in December 1928, and [...] on 27th July, 1955, it closed its doors [...].

Astor Theatre = 普慶戲院

The re-build theatre that started operating in 1957 used the English and Chinese names above.  Prior to that time, the early generation of the theatre was also known as Po Hing Theatre selected to match its Chinese pronounciation (my understanding).   Regards, Peter

 

Correct.

普慶戲院=Astor Theatre=Po Hing Theatre.
