Not much is known about this city centre adult cinema. It was located on the ‘Second Floor’ (First Floor, as Australians called it) of the Nicholas building. Patrons entered up stairs inside the Nicholas Building Arcade (see photograph taken on 8th January 2015). The cinema auditorium was located in the small building to the left of the Nicholas Building. Opened on 19th December 1977 with the family film “Joey and the Dolphin” (aka A Whale of a Tale) starring William Shatner. Seating was provided for 204. It soon opened as the Club Cinema, a cinema club operated by 14th Mandolin, the Melbourne-based film distributer. It quickly went over to screening adult movies. On 24th November 1983 it was taken over by the Club X chain of adult cinemas. It was closed on 15th December 1986. It became a clothing store for a while. It was demolished in the middle of 2019.
