News About This Theater
- Oct 21, 2009 — Northcote Plaza Theatre set to be demolished?
Located in the Northcote district of Melbourne, the Plaza Cinema was not purpose built, it was a remodeled conversion of the Northcote Market.
Designed by architect Rhys Hopkins in an Art Deco style, it opened as the Plaza Cinema on 29th December 1934 with Marlene Dietrich in "The Scarlett Empress" and Charles Ruggles in "Melody in Spring".
The Plaza Cinema closed in March 1959 and was converted into use as a shopping arcade and a reception centre for weddings and events named the Elysee Reception & Convention Centre. This had closed in 2009, and the building was sold to be converted into apartments.
