The Orah Cinema was planned and built in 1935-1936, opening possibly in late 1936 or early 1937. It was designed in an Art Moderne style by noted German architect Oskar Kaufmann, who had designed many cinemas, theatres and mansions in Berlin and around Germany in the 1920’s and 1930’s.
Seating was provided for more than 1,000 in orchestra and balcony levels. An unusual feature was the location of the foyer, which was beneath the balcony. The cinema had a small bar, which had its walls covered in bright multi-coloured ceramic tiles.
Following a fire in 1946, it was partially reconstructed by architect Eugen Stolzer, who was a former partner of Kaufmann. A new marquee was added that ran along the length of the building.
