Hongkong Amusement Ltd., open a new Theatre located in Nathan Road of Kowloon. A big roomy place the new theatre is fitted with a battery of electric fans that set up a breeze fresh enough to blow out every match in the box when you begin to light up your pipe. The chairs are those comfortable semi-circular ones and although the floor is level right through the building everyone gets a good view because the screen is hoisted well up. There is seating accommodation for about 400 and there must have been close upon that number of patrons at the opening performances last night. A film version of Maeterlinck's 'The Blue Bird' was shown for the opening and supported by a clever comedy and some 'Pathe's Screen Magazine.'. It is announced by the management of the Coronet Theatre, another of the company's ventures that as an additional outlet has been secured for their films, a reduction will be made in their charges at the 9.15 p.m. performance.
