There has been attempts to get the Windsor Cinema heritage listed by the Art Deco Society of Western Australia, but so far unsuccessful(i think?).

The second auditorium maybe using the original projestor room(at the back of the auditorium). There is now a third auditorium inside, on the left hand side of the building as you go into the Windsor Theatre.

According to the Wikipedia article the Gardens portion closed in 1968 and there was an extensive renovation to the indoor theater. After a fire in the 1970s the theater was restored but closed 9/24/83.

New owners demolished the gardens adding a second auditorium which seated 210. At the time of the reopening the capacity of the original auditorium was 500 for a total of 710.
