The Victoria Theatre was in the Central district on the Hong Kong Island. The theatre was built on the site of the former Victoria Cinematograph, and opened to business on 26th May, 1911. The theatre building was reportedly to be a three-storey building, and the auditorium had seating in stalls and balcony levels.

Besides showing films, the theatre was also a venue for stage performances.
The theatre was supposedly closed on 1st April, 1920, and its last programmes included Charles Chaplin’s “Shoulder Arms”, Harold Lloyd’s “Luke Loses Patients” and the final episode of “Bound and Gagged”.
