I think some old movie posters were found after the theatre closed, while being renovated. Most of the theatre remains, i would'nt call it demolished. The Theatre Royal and Metropole hotel was heritage listed on 7/8/1978. The Theatre Royal was the first purpose built theatre in Western Australia(and maybe Australia?)!?

The inside of the Royal Theatre is intact inside on the top floor behind the facade.

I think the dress circle may still be there, on the top floor behind the facade.

Sadly like the Ambassadors becomes part of Hoyts distruction and is now Cinema Four, and sadly I had to work in the high rise that replaced them.

Archival picture; “Silver King” was the opening attraction at the Theatre Royal, so the picture is probably from 1897: http://tinyurl.com/32jdtva

The facade at least of this theater has survived and it appears to have been at least partially converted to retail:View link
