Doing some research on this theatre I discovered from the local newspaper,Northcote Leader,that this theatre opened as the Regent on 8 August 1925.It was operated by Associated Pictures and lists the designers as Millsom Brothers and the builders as S Millsom and Sons PTY LTD.I think Darebin Libraries are getting confused with another theatre which was located a block down the street which I think was called the Thornbury Theatre.
Architects were John and Drew Eberson.
Further investigation has discovered it opened on 5 August and was remodeled/modernised in 1998.It looks like most of the atmospheric decoration has gone.It now has 1852 seats.More info and photos at
