The Tiley Brothers began showing films in a open-air theatre in Watson’s Bay. In 1910 Arthur Tiley leased the upper level of the Town Hall building, calling it the Rivoli Theatre. In 1926 the lease went to Edward Smythe who called it the Watson’s Bay Theatre.
When talkies arrived it became the Rex Theatre, by 1952 it was the New Rex Theatre and finally the Village Cinema. It was a popular outlet for art, revivals and foreign films, so much so that Greater Union turned the larger, nearby Double Bay Vogue Theatre into a foreign film venue.
The Village Cinema closed in 1959 and the building now is home to the Watson’s Bay Reception Centre.
