King's Theatre

Ye Olde Englishe Fayre(or Pavilion) opened (October 1897?), and closed in 1903 and was demolished. Dalkeith Opera House was built in 1904, and opened on 27th September 1904. The theatre was known for a short time from April 1914 as the Tivoli Theatre, but soon reverted to the name King’s Theatre. The theatre closed in 1921.

The building was converted for use as a panel beating shop. A plan to reopen the building after World War II as a vaudeville venue fell through. In 1979 the building was converted into an ice skating rink, in 1984 it became an unlicensed disco, and shops and offices. After renovation, which earned a heritage award from Fremantle City Council, it became the Metropolis Nightclub, which was the venue for the centenary of the building on 8th October 2004.
