My family lived three doors down from the Savoy towards Hastings Deering,later NRMA.I can’t see how its' address could have been No.1,we were almost in the middle of that street at No.12,there were several shops before the corner towards Penshurst.Between us and Savoy,there was a large guesthouse(ex Doctor),and a hamburger joint,1943-47.One of the very top Theatres in Sydney suburbs,where I saw ‘Song of the South’ in ‘46,and where a dog ran amok and was shot by police in the backyard of the guesthouse.Just by chance I was roaming around in '95 and found the pile of bricks.

What a fantastic cinema it was. I still remember movies I saw there in the 1950s. Look at that area of Hurstville now, and weep at what “ progress” has brought!
