Paris Theatre Arcade Lane, Adelaide, SA - Previously The Plaza Theatre.

Previously The Plaza Theatre.

The elegant Plaza was transformed from the former Embassy Ballroom directly behind the Regent, the entrance of which was off Grenfell Street. To cope with this, a new entrance was built off Arcade Lane with a prominent sign easily visible from Rundle street and a line of illuminated balloons leading to it.

Later a large ‘Paris’ sign was erected over the entrance to the lane. Much of the Embassy interior – particularly of the vaulted ceiling – was retained, and the facade and new foyer, both lined with marble facing, added an air of refined elegance. The Plaza/Paris was built to replace the Rex, demolished to make way for a multi-story retail complex. Kathryn Hepburn was a guest at the theatre’s opening.
