Located in the north Sydney suburb of Willoughby North, on Penhurst Street near the corner of Macmahon Street. Built by the Hoyts Theatres chain and opened in 1938 as the Hoyts Willoughby Theatre. The cinema had seating provided in stalls and circle levels. It had some nice features like a glass enclosed crying room for mothers with babies. Hoyts closed the cinema in 1958, but it was taken over by the owner of the Willoughby Royal Theatre and renamed the Gothic Theatre after the Royal yacht.

It ran as a revival house, switched to foreign films but eventually closed and was converted into a furniture store. The building developed structural faults and was demolished in 1999. In 2012, a building containing a Blockbuster DVD store and Crown on Willoughby stands on the site.
