The plans for the Liberty Theatre in the news, April 6, 1948:

Pile driving has been completed on a plot of land at the corner of Jordan Road and Temple Street, Kowloon, where a picture theatre— to be known as “The Liberty Cinema" is to be erected.

[...] Messrs. Chau and Lee are the architects [...]

At Jordan Road, the Liberty Cinema, covering an area of 57 feet by 150 feet, will seat about 850 persons on the ground floor and 450 on the balcony. The owners are the Far East Investment Co., and the contractors are the Lai Hin Construction  Co. It is hoped that the theatre will be finished in August.
