Street view of the Cinne Arts Theatre.

Located on the ground floor, of a two storey Art Deco style building. The Cinne Arts Theatre was opened as an adult movie theatre in June 1970. It was operating 24 hours a day in the 1970’s as an adult theatre.

The space became retail use as a home decor, arts and gift shop who later vacated. It remains in other retail use.
