Chinese Theatres – More places for amusement are now available for the Chinese in the Colony. The Chinese theatres which had suspended business for nearly a month are gradually re-opening. The Tai Ping Theatre is giving moving picture shows every night, and the Li Yuen Lok theatrical company, to which the theatre had been leased for the period of one year, is to come down from Canton sometime this week to give performances. The Chung Shing Benevolent Society's theatrical company performed in the Ko Shing Theatre, Queen's Road West, to raise funds for the Society's maintenance. A company of actresses is being formed and will give shows in the theatres of the well-known Lee Garden. It is not yet known when the new theatre in Kau U Fong, which is showing moving pictures, is to give Chinese shows. Busy scenes are again the rule in many of the tea houses in Hongkong, most of which had suspended business ever since the strike began. In addition to the usual attraction of engaging singing girls to give songs, some of them have followed the methods of the Canton tea houses of employing waitresses to attend their customers.
