Information for this tour was contributed by Ken Roe.

Opened by Hoyts as a twin cinema, both screens (with 750 seats and 932 seats) were equipped to screen 70mm film. In 1975 a 221 seat 3rd screen (35mm only) was constructed in space at the rear of the foyer. Hoyts vacated the complex in 1992 and it has shown Chinese movies ever since.
