The Mongkok Theatre was a neighourhood cinema in Mongkok on the Kowloon side of Hong Kong. The theatre opened at an unknown date in late 1930 or early 1931. Silent movies were shown in its early years before the installation of sound system in the early 1930s, and selected films were shown until the outbreak of war on 8th December, 1941.

It re-opened in 1942, and showed films censored by the Japanese Armies. According to a news article published by a Chinese language newspaper, the theatre was in business as of 17th October, 1943. The theatre re-opened after the war and showed second run films until its closure on 8th May, 1949. A bathing house was built on the site of the theatre.
