Cathay Cinema opened in 1939 and remained a single screen until 1990, when it was refurbished and converted into 2 screens. A third screen was added in 1996.
In addition to these 3 screens, Cathay Organisation built the Picturehouse next to the Cathay Building in 1990. Cathay Cinema remained Cathay Organisation’s flagship cinema since it opened until 2000 when it was closed.
It re-opened in 2006, having been transformed into a multiplex cinema and shopping arcade. The original facade of the Cathay Cinema is designated a Listed building.
