China Rose - George C. Scott (1983) - Former British Military Hospital, King's park

A few years ago, when I was looking at Yellowthread Street location, this building gave me a bit of a runaround because it seems to have gone virtually undocumented in terms of photographs other than a select few on FLICKR

Anyway, it turns out to have been the go-to place for hospital film scenes in the 80's and 90's. If you click on the Yellowthread Street link above you should be able to see a comment made by Jude Poyer regarding a few films he worked on that were also shot there. In China Rose we see, what I believe, is the back (north facing) side of the building being used as an establishing shot for where Scott goes after he gets injured helping his son escape the triads. It's a shame it's so brief but at least I know enough about the place now to recognise it when it pops up.
