“The Robe”. Oh yes, I remember the time when this movie was screened at the Broadway theatre; its Chinese title – shing po chen chui (holy garment a thousand autumns(?)). The painters in those days were very artistic and their 1-storey high painting outside the theatre wall showed two armed Romans, one ready to strike with his sword and the other getting ready to duck.

The Broadway Theatre was located on the southwest corner of Nathan Road and Mong Kok (or was it Argyle Street?). It was a popular theatre and showed mostly “20th Century Fox” films. In the early 1960s, tickets were selling for $1.50 (front), $1.70 (further back), and $2.40 (upper level).
