The Wah Lok Theatre was a neighbourhood theatre in To Kwa Wan on the Kowloon side of Hong Kong. Wah Lok is the Cantonese pronunciation of its Chinese name, literally meaning China and happiness.

It opened to business on 23rd January, 1960 with a Cantonese film, and showed Chinese dialect and selected English films until its closure on 2nd or 3rd January, 1972 with Walt Disney’s "The Snow White and Seven Dwarfs."

Its air-conitioned 1,261-seat auditorium was on the ground floor of the theatre building.

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