This cinema was built in 1915 and the first sound film was shown here on 8th December 1930.

The cinema closed and was demolished circa early-1940’s, and an office block (named Security Building) erected on the site. The address of this building was No.7-15 Exchange Place which was situated between Adderley and St.George Street.

In the early-1970’s the office block was demolished, Exchange Place closed to vehicular traffic, and a new building (The Old Mutual) erected on the site.
