A.J. Beszant’s ambition was to build a large de luxe theatre in each of Sydney’s key western suburbs. His Civic Theatre in the suburb of Auburn was the prototype - an imposing, luxurious theatre designed by architects Kaberry and Chard whose signature style involved much detailed filigree work.
The Crescent Theatre in the Sydney suburb of Fairfield at the corner of The Crescent & Court Road, was opened on 10th December 1934 with Jack Buchanan in “That’s A Good Girl” and Jack Holt in “The Defence Rests”
The theatre became Hoyts Crescent in 1944 when Beszant merged his company, Western Suburbs Cinemas Ltd. with the national Hoyts organization. It was closed on 26th July 1967.
The building survived several decades as a furniture store with the facade covered over. In October 2016 the auditorium was demolished, and plans are to restore the facade as an entrance to the home units built on the site.
