Crest Theatre 157 Blaxcell Street, Granville, NSW

The former Hoyts Crest Theatre is of State significance as one of only two known Quonset cinemas surviving in New South Wales. The Crest Theatre’s design reflects the cinema designs of the late 1930s continued into the post- World War II period in a simplified manner. Its interior features including decorative plasterwork, light fittings, drapery, candy bar and entry foyer are largely intact. They have high aesthetic significance and their style is unique among the cinemas of New South Wales.

The theatre’s distinctive facades, original signage and corner location make it a prominent landmark in the locality. This building has social significance as a local cinema from 1948 until 1963 and since then has been adapted for use as a public hall for social and entertainment purposes.
