Newcastle-under-Lyme is NOT one of the SIX potteries town in Staffordshire (they are Hanley, Stoke, Fenton, Burslem, Longton and Tunstall). The Potters will say they are “crossing the border” if they go to Newcastle from Stoke.

Just found a document for the theatre during the renovation project. http://www.amo.gov.hk/form/YMTT_RBB_HIA%20Report.pdf

For those who are not familiar with Hong Kong, this is a great reading, not only about the history of this cinema but also some background about the culture of the city. Fascinating.

Latest news is that Sunbeam has been saved for 4 years. The rent is now HK$1m (US$129k) a month but I am not sure if they can keep the business up with such a high rent.
