I assume there was a lift or lifts to get up to the cinemas too?

The Midcity Cinema Centre was opened by Amalgamated Theatres in 1987 as a replacement of their four older theatres (Kings, Plaza, Lido & Cinerama). The main opening film was ‘The Mission". All 3 screens seated about 450 and were of good design. However it was on the 3rd floor of an office building and there were escalators and passage ways to get up to it. In 1992 two more cinemas were added (120 & 60) and featured behind screen projection. These were on a lower level and were separately promoted as 'art house’ type cinemas. Hoyts suddenly closed these cinemas in 2007 without any prior warning and centered their Wellington operation on their 5 screen Regent on Manners
