This multiplex cinema was originally shared between the 3 big cinema chains in Australia ‘Greater Union Cinemas’ ‘Village Roadshow Cinemas’ and ‘Hoyts Cinemas’ when it first opened in 1976. The Hoyts Theatres had 7-screens and 4,382 seats in their Entertainment Centre. Greater Union Theatres operated the Rapallo (ex Victory Theatre from the 1930’s) and Paramount Theatre (a conversion of a factory building into a cinema in the 1960’s). Village Theatres opened a newly built 3-screen complex, and later added another two screens. These were later demolished. The Greater Union Cinemas and the Hoyts Theatres were incorportated into the current complex.
Since renovation was completed in 2001, this cinema is now the busiest cinema in Australia doing 30 – 40 thousand admissions per week and 10 – 20 thousand in quiet weeks.
It is now operated by Greater Union Theatres. In 2010, it was re-branded Event Cinemas.
