This cinema was originally built in 1912 as one of the first garages in Hilversum. In 1919 it was used by the Nederlandse Seintoestellenfabriek for the production of radio transmitters. After they left the buidling was reconstructed by architect A.R.B. Maas (Rotterdam) as a theater/cinema with 674 seats. In this form the building survived until 1972.
In that year the building was split into two cinemas and the facade was reconstructed. Later a third cinema was added in the former lobby. But the building was largely left unaltered and all later changes can be reversed. The original ceiling, stage, stagehouse, orchestra and stage lighting are still present. The original facade was hidden, but is still there. At this moment the building is threatened with demolition. It was closed by 2017.
