I just checked my street directory and I'm pretty sure that 64-68 Hindley Street is LC House. LC House is indeed the hideous building with the gold/brown stripes on the facade, but I doubt it was ever used as a cinema or theatre complex. Because if you look at the building's facade from Blyth Street, it appears the LC House is actually not a 60's monstrosity but rather a much older building, a much older building! It appears that LC House, due to the type of stone used is from the 1870s or so. However having said that, many establishments were used around Hindley Street, particularly in the 60's and 70's for arty or pornographic films.
