Kings Theatre

Located in the north-west Sydney suburb of Gordon. The New Empire Theatre was opened in May 1924. It was equipped with a Christie 2Manual/8Ranks organ, which was opened on 14th October 1929 by organist Idwal Jenkins. For many years, the resident organist was Miss Valda Kersey.

In the 1930’s it was re-named Kings Theatre. Always independently operated, the Kings Theatre was closed in October 1963, and was demolished.

The Kings was on Werona Avenue between Robert Street and the park. A block of flats replaced it. In 1942 Guy Crick was hired to make alterations. He had designed quite a few homes in the surrounding suburbs as well as additions to the Pymble Golf Club. The Christie organ was premiered with the film “King Of Kings” with accompaniement by Mr. Jenkins. The film was preceded by a recital with songs by Leslie McCallum.
