Savoy Newsluxe and Sturt Theatre, Rundle Street, Adelaide.

The SAVOY had a most spectacular neon display on the facade, with the world rotating at the top and skyrockets shooting up and exploding into myriad coloured stars. The STURT was a modernisation of the former MAYFAIR, which opened as the GRAND with a silent era piano-console Wurlitzer played by the famous Horace Weber, a former cathedral organist who was brilliant on the pedal clavier. His career was mostly in Melbourne, where he opened and closed the Wurlitzer in the famous CAPITOL, re-opening it in the DENDY, Brighton.
