Paris Theatre Arcade Lane, Adelaide, SA - 1966

Paris Theatre Arcade Lane, Adelaide, SA - 1966

In February 1966, the Plaza Theatre was renamed the Paris Theatre and opened with its new signage with “The Sound of Music” in the Todd-AO process, lasting two years and three weeks.

“The Sound of Music” concluded its long engagement on Saturday May 25, 1968. A few months later, after a few very minor features, the theatre closed with “A Guide to the Married Man” and was completely demolished in late-1968, to allow for the completion of a shopping arcade, which also decimated her beautiful sister theatre, the Regent Theatre.

In April 1969 a new cinema opened on the former Plaza/Paris Theatre site, with Julie Andrews in “Star!”. Known as Regent 2, it was designed by architect Peter Muller. Since that time it has been twinned and was still operating in 2001, but has since closed - Notes by KinoCQ/Australian Cinema And Theatre Society.
