Brief history:
Built in 1986 on the site of the former Waltons department store, the Village Centre was the last major downtown cinema constructed in Melbourne prior to the Village Casino 14. Audiences travel from all over Melbourne to see films in one of the best cinemas in Australia. VCC 1 is a spectacular design by Ron Monsborough that holds its own with todays multiplexes.

Don't believe me? Check out this equipment line-up in Cinema One alone: Two 35/70mm Bauer U3's, Speco LP 270 platter, 4,000 watt lamphouses, Pennywise Ezymation, Dolby CP 200 Processor, Peraux amplifiers, JBL speakers w/L, IL, C, IR, R, monster subs & surrounds, THX, Dolby Digital, SDDS, 4/6 track magnetic and a professional projection team with a combined 30 years plus experience. VCC is the place for those dazzling THX and SDDS logos. It is also home to the Melbourne International Film Festival each year.
