Over the next couple of years, a concert hall was added, as well as the large "Intercontinental" hotel, now "Crowne Plaza". This place hosted many important international events.

The concert hall is also used as a movie theater, and the famous traditional Belgrade's film festival called FEST uses it, for example, as its principal cinema hall.
