Hailed as Hong Kong's forgotten Impressario, Harry Odell founded the Empire Theatre in 1952 and operated the venue until 1957. He brought to Hong Kong world-class performing artists to perform in the most prestigious venues of the time, namely, his Empire Theatre (later the State Theatre), and after its closure, Lee Theatre, Hong Kong City Hall, etc. In their conservation campaign of the State Theatre, To Be Continued directors Dora Choi and Haider Kikabhoy rediscovered Harry Odell as well as the equally obliterated golden era of cultural life in post-war Hong Kong.
