Located in the east Melbourne suburb of Forest Hill. The Forest Hill Cinema was built and operated by an independent operator, and opened on 1st June 1968 with Otto Preminger’s “Hurry Sundown”. It was closed in 1989, when the Hoyts Forest Hill 10 opened in the Chase Shopping Centre across the road.

Last used as a nightclub, in March 2011, it was empty and unused. In 2012, it was in use as a dance studio.

Although primarily built for cinema, a large stage for theatrical presentation was also included. Sadly, little used. Occasional amateur pantomimes during holiday periods, and some local school speech nights was the sum total of this under-used facility. Recent inspection revealed auditorium little changed, apart from all seating removed and a flat floor to accommodate a dance studio. Original proscenium and silver/grey tabs remain.
