St. Peters Theatre

Viewing: Photo | Street View

Located on King Street at the corner of Concord Street, in the Sydney inner-city suburb of Erskineville. The St. Peters Theatre was opened on 14th October 1927 on the site of the 1913 built Coronation Picture Palace. It was always an independent cinema, not tied to any circuit.

After it closed in June 1960, it was used as a warehouse. By 2003, it had been closed-up and abandoned. It was put up for sale, the roof had been removed and the interior gutted, just leaving the four exterior walls standing. Plans were proposed to construct apartments within the shell of the building.

By March 2010, these plans had been carried out. There is an underground car park in the basement, for the use of residents. On the first floor in what was the circle foyer is a gymnasium. The ground floor entrance is in retail use as an arts shop.

I went to the pictures there during the 1950s.
