My husband and I went there in Feb 21st, 2008 on a weekday to watch Sweeney Todd. We were the only patrons there. For the price of HK$175 (US$22.55) each, we had the entire theatre all to ourselves. Even if it were full, it wouldn't be crowded. It seats a total of 16 people. It was a good break from the crowd in one of the most crowded cities in the world.
The price includes the following:
- Movie ticket;
- Unlimited soft drinks, tea, coffee, and popcorn (caramel or butter);
- One serving of hot dog;
- wonderful customer service.
There was a full bar there with a collection of wine, also.
The sound and picture quality were good, seats were huge and comfortable. They even provided a footstool for each seat. There were call buttons on both sides of a given seat, so one can order a refill of the drinks or popcorn--though the size of their drinks and popcorn is a hearty portion that we did not need to refill, we actually have some left over.
The customer service was great, we first ordered the tickets through Cityline's phone service (more about this later), and they gave us the wrong seats, we e-mailed Director's Club and they phoned us within 1 minute after the e-mail was sent! They changed our seats for us, and we had a great time during the movie!
The most romantic way to get there from Kowloon:
Take a ferry ride from Hung Hum Pier across the Victoria Bay to North Point Pier, take a taxi (HK$20, about US$3) to Tai Koo Shing.
Of course, the fastest way would be to take MTR (the wonderful, ever expanding train system) to Tai Koo Station.
How to get a hold of Director's Club:
Their phone service was inactive the entire morning when I was trying to fix a reservation problem (detail below), but when I e-mailed them, they phoned me within one minute, literally.

A note of caution about City Line:
Do not use it. You can order the tickets directly from the threatre's website.
1. If you use a visa or master card that was not issued in Hong Kong, the online system would not recognise it. So we had to use the phone system. The second time we used our American Express card and there was no problems at all.
2. The phone system does not recognise the special set up of this threatre, so when we ordered "the middle seats of the middle rolls" it placed us in the back right corner... and the Cityline customer service refused to change or cancel our reservation -- so we could re-do it online with our AE card. It was not resolved until we got a hold of the Director's Club.
