The Olympia Theatre was situated in the North Point district on Hong Kong Island.
It opened to business on 30th July 1965 as a 1,183-seat theatre with balcony with a Cantonese film.

Its auditorium with a 42-foot wide screen was on the first floor of the theatre building with the lobby on the ground floor. There was an escalator linking the lobby with the foyer for the back stalls on the first floor. The foyer for the patrons of the balcony was air-conditioned.

The theatre closed temporarily on 4th September 1988 for renovation and re-opened on 22nd September 1988 as a twinned theatre with one screen in the stalls and the other on the balcony.

The theatre showed Chinese dialect, English and Japanese films until its closure on 27th July, 1995.

A commercial building was built on the site of the theatre.
