Architect's sketch of proposed Art Deco make-over of the Cottesloe Theatre, January 1937

I haven’t been able to ascertained whether this Art Deco revamp of the Cottesloe Theatre ever took place. If so, the building (as shown) certainly doesn’t exist today. If it did, it would be on the State Heritage Register.

According to CinemaWeb, the Cottesloe Theatre was originally Wells Hall (on the corner of Leake Street and Stirling Highway)and “alterations costing more than £3,000 were undertaken in 1928, and in 1937 the hall was completely remodelled and became purely a cinema. At this stage the hall and gardens each held 900. In the sixties, the company bought up surrounding properties until they had enough to interest a development company, which demolished everything on the site and constructed the Grove Shopping Centre.”
