Waverley Theatre

Located in the Melbourne southeastern suburb of East Malvern. The Waverley Theatre was opened in 1938, and had seating provided in stalls and circle levels.

It was closed in 1964, and began use as a studio venue for the ABC Orchestra. In the mid-2000’s, it was converted into apartments.

I recently wrote a blog on a few of my local theatres of the past, and included a couple of framed photographs from inside the former Waverley Theatre building, showing what the internal decorative framework originally looked like. You can see them here at http://turnerstreettopics.blogspot.com.au/2016/07/grand-openings-sad-closings-and-survivor.html. There were more but I didn’t like to ask if I could photograph them all! I also found quite a few articles on the opening of another old theatre in the area, the New Malvern, which was demolished in 1987. It doesn’t seem to be mentioned on this site, but perhaps someone might like to add it in.
