Located a five-minute walk from the walls of the Old City of Jerusalem. The Al Quds Cinema (Arabic for Jerusalem Cinema) was opened in 1950 with 800 seats. It was closed by the Isreali authorities in 1987. The building then became derelict for the next 25 years.

Refurbishment of the building commenced in 2007, and it is now the Yabous Cultural Centre, containing the 81-seat Al Quds Cinema, which was re-opened in February 2012. It screens films from Iran, Syria, Lebanon, Egypt and Tunisia.

There are also two other spaces in the building, the Morocco Hall which hosts exhibitions, music & dance and the Faisal al-Husseini hall which will be a 420 seat venue.
