Located in the Sydney suburb of Mosman, this beautifully designed Art Deco theater was designed by the architecture firm of Crick and Furse. This beloved movie palace opened on Friday, 15th October 1937, with the main feature “Nobody’s Baby” starring Lynne Overman.
In 1967, a large slice of the theater’s frontage was lost to road widening (the theater is located on a major transportation artery which leads to Sydney’s northern beaches). In 1972, the ‘New Kings’ name was changed to ‘The Classic’, but then back to ‘Village’ in 1976. Under the Village banner, the theater underwent extensive refurbishment, restoring some of the grandeur that had been lost over the years.
The theater finally closed on Wednesday, September 17, 1986 and was demolished to make way for the Greater Union Cinema Centre which opened in December 1987. This replacement twin theater operated as Greater Union Mosman 2, until it was closed in January 2011.
