Information for this tour was contributed by Ken Roe.

Built on the site of the first Enmore Theatre (1911) the current building was constructed in 1920 to the design of architects Kaberry & Chard. It operated as an Independent theatre for its owners the Szarka brothers, had a seating capacity of 3,00 and continued the policy of Vaudeville and moves that the first theatre had offered.

In 1927 it was taken over by Hoyts and in 1936, they re-modelled it both externally and internally into an art deco movie palace masterpiece by architect Charles Bohringer. With a seating capacity now at 2,308 it was closed by Hoyts as a full time cinema in February 1967 and was sold to Louis Films who screened foreign language films until they closed it down in May 1984. It re-opened briefly later that year with a mix of English language films and stage shows and now has established itself as a major venue for live presentations and concerts.
