This used to stand on the corner of Morrison Hill Rd and Sharp Street West.

There's a hotel there now.

Does anyone know which years it opened & closed?



Hi there,

There is a Wiki entry saying the theatre opened on 1st April 1966.  The South Pacific took its place some time in 1993 with two mini theatres of the same name running for a few years before making way for the Hotel's own restaurants/function room.

I guess it would be safe to state the old theatre was demolished around 1990.
