Extended Life of a Cinema Building

Majestic Cinema at Chamberlain Street was one of the popular cinemas in town. It was the first cinema completed after World War II. Operating for more than 30 years, finally it lost the battle with video cassette that became so popular during 1980’s. It turned to be a video game center for several years, and then changed to be a furniture shop until today. None of the old cinemas in Ipoh survived in the wave of change. All have been converted for other purposes today.
