The Civic Theatre, formerly the Wondergraph, latterly the State.

Located in the centre of Adelaide. The Wondergraph Theatre was opened on 5th September 1913. It was designed by architects Garlick & Jackman and had an ornate ‘Temple of Dreams’ facade.

It was re-named Civic Theatre/New Civic Theatre from 1932 until 1957. Rebuilt to include CinemaScope and air conditioning, it reopened as the State Theatre, which closed in May 1977.

From 2002, it has become a bar, nightclub and cabaret club, known as The Weimer Room. In May 2019 following renovations it re-opened as an entertainment centre named Downtown. The former front stalls is used as an entertainment centre, the foyer is a snack bar/drinks bar and restaurant and the former projection booth is a rooftop bar.
