Located in the Sydney inner-city district of Newtown. The building was constructed in the 1890’s as the Newtown Swimming Baths and Winter Skating Rink. It was converted into a department store in the early-1900’s.
On 30th December 1914 it was converted into a cinema, known as the Hub Theatre with 882 seats. Later taken over by the Hoyts Theatres chain, it was re-modeled in an Art Deco style by architect William T. Leighton in 1934, and re-named Hoyts Newtown Theatre.
Hoyts Newtown Theatre was closed in September 1959, a casualty of the introduction of television in 1956. It was gutted internally and became a community centre.
In the the late-2000’s, it was converted into apartments, with a restaurant operating in the former entrance foyer area. The attractive Art Deco style facade remains on King Street.
