The original Darcy Palace opened around the time of World War I. During WW II it served as a Soldatenkino for the German forces. The present cinema complex retains the original street facade of the original Darcy Palace. I have, somewhere but just now mislaid, more details of the history, which I will post if they turn up.

Took a while but I found my information eventually, hiding in plain sight.

The Darcy Palace first opened on 6 March 1914, with “Mark Anthony and Cleopatra”, it was designed by the architect Bouchard and it had about 1,100 seats, but they claimed 1,500. During World War II it was a “Soldatenkino”. Additional screens were added from 1976, with the sixth screen added in 1995.
