Located in the (now) trendy Sydney inner-city suburb of Newtown, opposite Newtown Railway Station. The Clays Bridge Theatre opened in 1910 with vaudeville. It was converted into a cinema, opening on 16th July 1913. Re-modeled in 1939 to a modern Art Deco style and re-named Hub Theatre. Later known as Hub Theatre No 1, after the nearby former Coronation Theatre on Erskineville Road, Erskineville had been re-named Hub Theatre No.2.
Later known as the Newtown Art Theatre, it reverted back to the Hub Theatre name in the 1970’s. It became an adult porn cinema, which was closed down in the late-1990’s. After that, it was briefly used as a live theatre by the Shakespeare Players, but they moved out in 2002. Since then the building has remained shuttered, with several plans to re-open, that have come to nothing.
