Located adjacent to the Ards Shopping Centre, located at the junction of Circular Road and Blair Mayne Road South. Movieland opened as a twin-screen cinema in 1992. Seating capacities were 236 and 172. In recent years, an additional 4 screens have been added.

An unusual feature of the cinema is the location of a fully working theatre organ that is positioned on a ledge over the concession stand in the foyer. It is a Compton 3Manual/8Rank instument, that was originally installed in 1936, in the Ambassador Cinema (later Odeon), Hounslow, Middlesex in the west of Greater London, England.

My scanned photographs of the exterior were taken in March 2000, and my scanned photographs of the cinema organ were taken in September 2008. The Movieland is owned and operated by local businessman Ernie Watson.
