Fair Lady Theatre

The My Fair Lady Theatre was opened in 1966 with Audrey Hepburn in "My Fair Lady", and was operated by Warner Bros. It was equipped with 70mm and stereophonic sound.

It was later taken over by Roadshow Theatres chain, with the name shortened to Fair Lady Theatre. It was finally taken over by an independent operator. The Fair Lady Theatre was closed on 21st February 1988. It was used briefly for rock concerts, and for a final time on 29th October 1988, when a rock show & disco named ‘Farewell to a Fair Lady’ was held in the building. The Fair Lady Theatre was demolished in late-1989.

A small shopping mall was built on the site, which included a 5-screen Greater Union Hindley Street cinema, located at the rear.

Does anyone know how big the screen was. In theo ry it should have been large as it was build especially for a 70mm release.
