The apartments that are there now, are called Equus Apartments(and Equus Arcade?). The photo of Cinema City, and the Equus Apartments(there now), both have Perth Town Hall(across the road) shown reflecting on the windows.

Cinema City was built built on the site of the former Haymarket building(and first site of David Jones in the City?),picture of demolition of the Haymarket building in the West Australian(21/11/1978). Cinema City and Arcade opened on 7/11/1980(on 4 different screens) with “The Blue Brothers”,“Flying high(Airplane in Usa)”,“Rough cut”,and “The Black stallion”. Cinema City may have been the first to have a lift for the disabled,and the second to have toilets for the disabled in the city(first cinema to have disabled. toilets unknown?). There was planned to add a fifth cinema,but it was built. Cinema City was closed on 17/10/2007. The cinema and arcade has been demolished except for the Anz bank,and Mcdonalds on the corner of Barrack Street and Hay Street,and the right hand side of the Barrack Street part of Cinema City Arcade used as offices while the 20 storey apartment complex was being built(use now unknown?).
