Read in Russian: https://magazeta.com/arc-grande-theater/
The article mentions the old Carlton Café and the early Grand Theatre, the architect L. E. Hudec,  A. A. Reyer's construction company, F. Chaliapine's visit to Shanghai, as well as audience complaints about the design of the building and their (ridiculous) solutions.
