Information for this tour was contributed by Ken Roe.
This beautiful Spanish Mission styled cinema was designed by Moore & Dyer and opened as an Independent cinema, until 1937 when it was leased to Western Suburbs Cinemas. In 1946 it was sold to Hoyts and the organ was sold and removed in the 1950s. It was listed by the National Trust as a Historic Building in 1974. The single screen was tripled in 1976 when the proscenium arch and splay walls were removed. No 1 screen was in the former circle area and no's 2 & 3 in the rear stalls under the circle. The cinema closed for restoration in 1988 and it re-opened in November that year under the control of Village Cinemas. It closed in March 2002 in favour of a new Village multiplex close by and has now been converted into a entertainment styled pub and rock venue which opened in February 2004.
