  • <p>The deco relief / frieze on the north façade of the theatre is known as “The Dancer”. It stems from days of the Paradise Theatre (1938), a reworking by architect by Thomas Kerr of the Globe Theatre (1912-1913), which became the Coronet Cinema (1965) after being reworked by architect Ross A. Lort. The “Coronet” sign was removed in a 1986 renovation, when the theatre became the Empire Granville 7. This façade is considered heritage, but it has no protection and could be demolished.</p>
