This long narrow theatre, just 17 seats across, opened as the Melba Theatre on 8th June 1911. The interior was remodeled in a simple Art Deco style in 1939, and renamed the Liberty Theatre. It was operated by the Greater Union Theatres chain.

It was destroyed by a fire in October 1950 and a new theatre built within the shell, reopening as the Odeon Theatre in November 1951. The theatre closed in February 1978.
