Designed by architect R.J. Denneby, this is how the auditorium of Perth’s Grand Theatre looked in c.1916.

The Grand’s Art Deco / Moderne make-over came in 1938 under the direction of architect William T. Leighton. It was never particularly ‘grand’ and Leighton’s make-over simply made Denneby’s original more functional within the design sensibilities of the day. Even in its Art Deco ‘rebirth’, it remained a poor relation to the Piccadilly, Plaza and Metro.
