This started life as the Seoul Theater on May 2, 1954 as a single-screen theater, and remained like that for the following few decades but with a couple of name changes from time-to-time. First it was known as the Segi Theater in 1960 and was renamed the Seoul Cinema in 1979. Then in 1989, the name was changed to Seoul Cinema Town, and the theater was split into three screens under the auditorium names “Venice”, “Academy”, and “Cannes”.

A few months later, all the three screens were eventually renamed “Seoul Theater” as it was unfortunately unified. The original Seoul Theater name returned in 1997.

Between 2002 and 2003, the theater expanded to 12 screens that was followed from major remodeling which completed at the end of 2003. It remained like that until another remodel in 2018.

The Seoul Cinema closed for the final time on August 31, 2021.
