LHC has meeting and exhibition space, a restaurant, a pub, salon, terrace and five cinemas for arthouse, world cinema and classical movies. LHC is found in the center of Utrecht.

LHC is established in a former police station. The complex is a national monument in the style of the Amsterdam School, designed by Utrecht city architect Johannes Izak Planjer. Planjer designed the building and the adjacent bridge with quay wall and tram stop.

A facing brick by Stef Stokhof de Jong called The Old Toll Alley Gate (D' Oude Tollesteegh-poort; see drawing 040) has been placed in the gate of LHC in 1995.

The city of Utrecht gave permission in 2001 to transfer the old police station into a big movie theater. Jos Stelling had some experience with the Springhaver movie which opened in 1978. A big renovation of the building was necessary for the five cinemas. Two cinemas had to be fitted without changing the structure of the building because of a monument status. The reconstruction was done without subsidies. The building was bought and reconstruction started two years later. The cinemas are built on the courtyard, partly below ground, because of limitations on maximum height. The first public was welcomed on July 22, 2004. Official opening was on September 5, 2004 by Louis Hartlooper jr., son of actor and explainer Hartlooper.
