    The last single-theatre cinema in Seoul, it opened in 1964 under the name Hwayang Theater.

    it was scheduled for eviction in December 2007 and demolition early in 2008. The theatre owner, in one last desperate act, started showing Dirty Dancing, and ticket sales on the first weekend were enough to convince the landlord to keep it open. They kept showing Dirty Dancing nonstop for months, eventually switching to other films, defying redevelopment and staying open.

     Future Plans
    After a final encore run of films, this cinema will be torn down and turned into more skyscrapers.
