Crest Theatre 157 Blaxcell Street, Granville, NSW - Closed 24th August 1963

The Crest Theatre Granville was designed by architect Christopher A. Cowper and architectural firm John W. Roberts & Ass. It had an imposing corner entrance, that had a slender fin-tower feature. Inside the auditorium, the seating was on a stadium plan, with a raised stepped section at the rear, instead of an overhanging balcony. Operated by the Hoyts Theatres chain for its entire cinematic life. In it last years, it was only open one day a week, on a Saturday. The final closing date was Saturday, 24th August 1963.

After closing as a cinema, it was used as a ballroom and bingo hall. The building is currently used as a public hall. It is Listed on the National Register of Historic Buildings.
