Oriana Theatre, Fremantle - Foyer

Located on High Street at the corner of Queen Street, on the site of the old Rose and Crown Hotel(and later also the Fremantle Grammar School). Hoyts built a new theatre which they considered calling the Crown Theatre, but finally named the simply Hoyts Fremantle Theatre. Hoyts Fremantle Theatre opened on 4th August 1938 with “Love on a Budget” and “Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs”. Name changed to Oriana Theatre in 1961 when taken over by City Theatres. The theatre closed on 4th December 1971, and was demolished in February 1972. There is an article in the West Australian newspaper(17the December 1972) about three people hurt during the demolition of the theatre. The site is now shops(and offices?).
