The theatre opened to business in the late-1970’s/early-1980’s as the Kam Do Theatre. It became the Lai Do Theatre and was later re-named Kwai Chung Theatre before being re-named Yiu Sing Theatre in January 1992. It closed in 1993. Yiu Sing is the Cantonese pronunciation of its Chinese name, its exact English name is unavailable.

It was opened as “Kam Do”/“Golden Capital” under the management of Far East Entertainment in the late 70s/early 80s. It was renamed as “Kwai Chung” before renaming again to Yiu Sing, likely due to changing hands.

When it opened, Kam Do was the first cinema in the Kwai Chung district, where it was developed in the early 70s. I cannot remember the exact capacity but I think it was only about 500 seats.

It had been renamed from Kam Do (金都) to Lai Do (麗都) in 1988 when it started to show adult movies; then Kwai Chung (葵涌) and finally Yiu Sing (耀星).
