Originally opened as the Empress Theatre in 1927, it was initially a vaudeville theatre. Soon after opening movies began to be shown and the theatre was listed as having a seating capacity of 1,350.

The Cinéma V-Salle Hermes theatre was opened in 1968 with Cinema V downstairs and the Balcony known as Salles Hermes.

During the 1970’s this theatre showed the cult film "The Rocky Horror Picture Show". In 1988 Famous Players took over the theater, but unfortunately a fire shut it down in 1992.
