Previous Names: Sunbeam Theatre
The Sunbeam Theatre is in the North Point district on the Hong Kong Island. It opened to business on 16th September, 1972 with a Mandarin narrated archaeological documentary.
Its spacious lobby and auditorium are on the ground floor of the theatre building. The stalls section is stadium seating, and the projector room is in the rear of the stalls.
It showed selected Chinese dialect and English language films while no Chinese operas or Mandarin variety shows were performed.
In 1989, the theatre was divided into two auditoriums, with the smaller one converted from the balcony for showing films, while the larger one converted from the stalls for stage performances. In March 2007, the smaller auditorium was rebuilt as a multi-purpose theatre for stage performances.
The Sunbeam Theatre is the last private theatre in Hong Kong for stage performances. After its current lease contract expires, its future as a theatre is uncertain. It was set to close on 19th February 2012, but was reprieved.
The 1,033-seat Sunbeam Theatre continues as a live theatre, and the balcony was converted into a 108-seat cinema which opened on 11th February 2018 as the Super 3 Cinema
