The theatre is located on a sloping site with magnificent curved 'prow' with the old Como Theatre name in relief on the top and a walkway with a metal railing.

The rest of the building is constructed from rectangualar shapes separated started with a square brick tower decorated with vertical lines in multiple shades of reds and pinks.

The large rendered wall next to the tower features 3 porthole windows high on the pink expanse.

  1. Seeing a movie here feels like a special event compared to the multiplexes that we usually have to go to!

  2. Very well put. Going to the movies should be an event. Not just something tacked on went we go to the shopping centre.
