atmos commented about Playhouse Theatre on Jul 20, 2005 at 7:55 pm

Thanks john martin.I have just discovered the website.The original information was off a website I found but have since lost it.The Playhouse complex consists of an Opera Theatre(1224 seats)Drama Theatre(474 seats)and Loft(136 seats).The Prince’s Theatre opened in July 1926.
The Opera Theatre has a starry sky,so could it be described as an atmospheric.

Sorry but the Playhouse and the Princess were different theatres and it is not a multiplex,the largest theatre is used for opera,although the venue does host the Durban Film Festival.I will do some more research.

atmos commented about Grand Rex on Jun 18, 2005 at 3:31 am

I am wondering whether John Eberson did anything for this theatre except inspire the architect.I have found an article which states that the theatre was designed by the architect Auguste Bluysen and the decorator was Maurice Dufrene.

Actually,RobertR,there was another theatre here in Melbourne which when it first opened in December 1964 was called the My Fair Lady theatre for the screening of that film and then changed it’s name to the Palladium Theatre.These are the only two examples that I know of,but there were probably others.

I believe one the remodelings was done by John Eberson,most likely in the 1930’s.
