Located in the Clovelly district of Sydney at the corner of Clovelly Road and Knox Street. This was the last cinema to be built and opened for the Kings Theatres chain. It opened o 24th June 1939 with Ronald Coleman in “If I were King” and Dennis O'Keefe in “Burn ‘em Up O'Connor”. It has the familiar 'Kings’ Art Deco style on the exterior, but with a brick facing. Seating was provided for 593 in the stalls, 168 in the front circle and 184 in the rear circle.
In early-1959, the brick facade was rendered in cement. Just after that, the Kings Theatre was closed on 25th April 1959 with Stanley Baker in “Violent Playground” and Norman Wisdom in “Just My Luck”.
It was converted into a RSL Club (a social club for ex-servicemen) which closed in 2012. By 2018 it was in use as a child care centre.
