The Hippodrome was opened in 1895. It was a pre-fabricated structure, clad in corrugated iron sheets, and given an internal decoration. It was located on Railway Street and Newmarket Street, close to the Dock’s Railway Station.
By 1909, it was showing ‘bio-tableaux’, a form of cine-variety, and soon became known as the Picturedrome when films were screened, and Hippodrome when live shows were presented.
The Hippodrome was closed in the early-1920’s. It was demolished in 1922, following a major fire in the building.
