Information for this tour was contributed by Ken Roe.

Constructed in the 1890s as Newtown Swimming Baths and Winter Skating Rink it was converted into a department store in the early 1900s. In 1914 it was converted into the Hub Theatre and was re-modelled in 1934 into an Art Deco style cinema by Hoyts architect William T. Leighton. Since closing, and converting to its current use the interior has been gutted.
