Built as new film studios, which also contains an entertainment centre with shops, cinemas and an amusement park (now closed). The Fox Studios Australia complex is on the site of the Showground’s, where the Royal Agricultural Society used to hold its annual Royal Easter Show. Located 10 minutes from Sydney city centre, Fox Studios opened in May 1998 and films produced here include "Babe: Pig in the City", "The Matrix" and parts of the "Star Wars" saga.

The Fox Studio Cinemas opened in late-1999, and are operated by Hoyts Cinemas chain. Designed in a stunning Art Deco style that mirror the golden age of movie palaces in the 1930’s. The right-hand wall of the huge 4-storey high lobby, has a montage of ‘blown-up’ vintage photographs of former Sydney cinemas.

Ititally opened with 16 screen, an IMAX Theatre has recently been added, which is equipped to screen both 2D and 3D films. There are also La Premiere screens.
