Yellowthread Street (TV Series) - Bruce Payne (1990) - Wharf Road, North Point

It's been a while since I largely finished with Yellowthread Street locations, but this one particular place left me and others quite stumped. It's the site of the AMF Superbowl that I couldn't seem to track down. Here's the reminder.

It's where Eden goes in and starts shooting up the bowling alley with a big shotgun - as you do - from the very first episode, Power Play. Anyway, many thanks to AP for tracking this one down via an old map, from 1994, over at the HKU website which gave details of a superbowl centre at the Provident Centre on Wharf Road. A quick look on Streetview reveals the same locations seen in the top picture has since been remodeled and the superbowl has now become a subterranean branch of the local supermarket, Park N Shop.

So many thanks to AP for finally solving this 1+ year mystery.
