Located in the inner-east Adelaide suburb of Norwood, at the corner of The Parade and George Street. The Town Hall was built in 1881/1882. The large hall is located upstairs on the first floor of the building, and has seating provided on a flat floor orchestra level and a stepped balcony level.

Films were screened from 7th May 1897. The Town Hall was part of the D. Clifford Theatres Ltd. circuit in the mid-1940’s, and was later taken over by the Greater Union Cinemas chain.

The Town Hall has not been used for cinema exhibition for very many years, but it is now in use for many entertainments which require a large audience and commodious stage, plus a flat floor for dancing. It has permanent theatre seating in the large balcony. There is also a sizeable hall on the ground floor. The Parade is a very sophisticated restaurant and shopping strip comparable with any that I have seen in the U.S.A., the U.K. or Europe.
