The Kowloon Theatre was on the Nathan Road on the Kowloon side of Hong Kong. Its exact location is still a mystery.

The theatre opened to business on 13th June, 1921 with “The Blue-Birds”. It ceased to show films on 1st March, 1923,and its last film was “The Cinderella Man”. Except for showing film, it also served as a venue for concerts. Renowed violinist Mischa Elman played at the theatre on 20th July, 1921.

An advertisement for the theatre on the Hong Kong Telegraph on 1st March, 1923 said that:

“Available for club or private dance. For vacant dates apply to H.W. Ray the Coronet”.

The theatre building demolished at an unknown date.
