Unfavorite 1 person favorited this theater

Auditorium, early 1930s.

Located in the inner-east Adelaide suburb of Norwood at the corner of The Parade and Queen Street. The original entrance was on The Parade. The Star Theatre was operated by the Clifford Theatres/Star Theatres circuit in 1951. It was taken over by Greater Union Cinemas and re-named Odeon Theatre.

Since closing as a cinema, it re-opened in 1986 as a live theatre, specializing in childrens productions, with the entrance moved around the corner onto Queen Street, with the original entrance/foyer now a restaurant.

Remembner it well. Dad worked for Hoyts theatres. As ‘the opposition’s’ theatre, we only attended when a movie we particularly wanted to see was showing there.
