The Queens Theatre was opened in 1913. In 1938 it was re-named Sesqui Theatre. It became part of the MGM chain in the 1953 and was renamed the Metro Crows Nest.
In early-1971, Metro sold the chain to Greater Union but, for some reason, the Crows Nest site was initially not part of the takeover. It was re-named Village Theatre in 1974 and operated under this name only until 1975
After a short closure, it ran second release product for some months, then closed for refurbishment, reopening in December 1977 as part of the Dendy group with the Australian premiere of “The 12 Chairs”.
For several years it featured first release product, including a run of “Harold and Maude” before closing when the Dendy group ran into financial trouble.
The theater was demolished in 1983 and the land redeveloped.
