Designed by Alex Blue, the 1968 Village Cinema originally opened as a single screen, first run movie house. Seating capacity was (aprox) 1000. Sometime during the 1970s a wall was constructed down the middle of the auditorium and it became a twin cinema.

It is true the Village Cinema originally opened as a modern, single screen theatre, with an imaginative contemporary decor. Lobby furniture was of black leather and chrome. Restrooms walls were veneered in refelctive black glass. Auditorium seating offered ample leg room, and a beveled shadow box framed a massive silver screen.

Lettering makes it look like a GCC theatre.
