When opened in January 1930, the Public Health department identified 22 building breaches. When the owners refused to comply with Health Department demands, the theatre was closed on 6 November 1931, and the owners went into liquidation. Balwyn theatre remained closed until the following April 1932.
Originally the circle was accessed directly from a staircase leading from the stalls foyer. In 1941 major alterations saw the construction of a mezzanine circle foyer and the addition of 2 more toilet blocks.
