Opened in 1946 as the Midtown Theatre, the Cinema was a true art theater well before the time that idea became popular. Aside from showing subtitled foreign films, the management served European-style coffee and fine pastries in the lobby before the show began. The theater had a policy of showing British and other European product almost exclusively. It was a relatively small house with subtle, indirect lighting on dark, velvety walls.
The Cinema burned down in a fire in 1984. The Market Arcade theatres (a modern six-plex) currently stands close to the site of the Cinema.
