The Golden Harvest Cinema was built in 1974. This theater closed in the 1990’s.

Around 2004 the Golden Harvest was purchased by film producer William Vince (Capote). The theatre was renovated and used primarily for art films. William Vince passed away in 2008. The Golden Harvest Cinema is currently used for private screenings and has been renamed Cinema 319. It was renamed imperial Cinema in 2014.

Renamed the Imperial in 2014.

Here’s a good article by Aaron Chapman that covers some of the early days:
