The rename to GH Washington was triggered by the closure/redevelopment of Empress and Royal in Mongkok. The Royal chain took Empire, in Mong Kok, back from the Newport chain to replace Royal as the leading cinema. In turn, Newport chain took Golden Harvest, in Jordan, from the Golden Harvest chain, renamed it as Newport, which became the leading cinema in their chain. Golden Harvest therefore moved to GH Washington, under Ecko chain and paired with Lee at that point, and it’s only a block away from the original GH. It was a bit of a waste because Washington was equiped with one the best audio systems (THX) for Hollywood blockbusters in late 1980s while GH only showed Cantonese movies.
