The builders of the theatre, also ran and built the cinema further up the street at 909 High St. They were apparently plasterers and wanted to show their abilities.

Doing some research on this theatre I discovered from the local newspaper,Northcote Leader,that this theatre opened as the Regent on 8 August 1925.It was operated by Associated Pictures and lists the designers as Millsom Brothers and the builders as S Millsom and Sons PTY LTD.I think Darebin Libraries are getting confused with another theatre which was located a block down the street which I think was called the Thornbury Theatre.
