There were two Olympic No. 4 theatres. The first was built at Oxford and Leswell streets but burned down shortly after. The second Olympic No. 4 was built at Oxford and Wallis and opened with “Rio Rita”. In 1932 Hoyts leased the theatre and merged with Olympic Theatres to form a new company, Hoyts (Bondi) Limited.

Jane Britten, Local History Librarian at the Woollahra Library, has kindly sent me the following information: The theatre’s site at Oxford and Wallis no longer exists as it did, due to part of it being subsumed in the late 70’s by the Bondi Junction bypass now named Syd Einfeld Drive. The site was transferred to Shell Oil who built a service station which remained until 1974 when the Department Of Main Roads purchased the property for the bypass. The theatre’s architects were Oakley and Middleton and this was their first cinema design.
