The Taxi Driver - David Chiang (1975) - HK ->Macau Ferry Terminal (interior), Hong Kong

We've seen various snaps of the exterior of the HK<-> Macau Ferry terminal courtesy of films such as The Man With The Golden Gun and Flatfoot in Hong Kong, but how about a few shots of the interior?

I don't have any independent verification on this, but am happy to make corrections if pointed to them, however there is a scene towards the end of The Taxi Driver when our baddies (or what's left of them) try to hot foot it over to Macau.

They are cornered by our heroes in what I can only assume is the interior of the terminal.

 I'm not sure when this older terminal was demolished but I do know that the Shun Tak Centre, which houses the current ferry terminal on its lower floors, was originally opened in 1984, so it's reasonable to assume the earlier terminal closed in the early 80's or very late 70's. Not that long after this film was made in fact.
