The Dominion Theatre was constructed in 1928 and 1929. It was esigned as a theatre for live shows, but the movies grew more popular, so the hall was converted to play show films as well. In the early years of WWII the theatre closed, but reopened in early 1941.

After the war the theatre was reconstructed to support live shows and musicals. The Judy Garland Show was the first with the opening night at October 16, 1957.
Movies were still shown betwwen these venues. Once more the theatre was adapted to support CinemaScope with 6 channels high fidelity sound. The South Pacific movie was the first to be shown at April 21, 1958.

In the Eighties also pop music concerts were given at the Dominion.

After reconstruction after the turn of the century the building still attracs many people. It's located at a hotspot in town.
