Built by Col. Balderson in 1915. Had a large balcony and 1,000 seats, which was the largest between Toronto and Montreal. Vaudeville and Repertory stage which often featured local legends the ‘Marks Brothers Company’ while taking summer breaks from their North American travels. Harry Houdini also played here. Movies were shown here until roughly 1960, when the theatre closed (Premiere Theatres was the last operator). This was the last commercial cinema to operate in the town of Perth not counting the drive-in (which remains operating a few miles west of town).
Now a Home Furniture store with many of the theatre features in excellent condition.
