Located in the west Melbourne district of Camberwell. Our Theatre was opened on June 29, 1921 with Geraldine Farrer in “The World and the Woman”. It was designed by Melbourne based architect Christopher A. Cowper (later to form architectural firm Cowper, Murphy & Appleford) in a French Renaissance/Adam style and had 1,800 seats, with 670 in the orchestra and 850 in the balcony. In 1926 it was taken over by Hoyts Theatres and re-named Broadway Theatre. In 1938 it was remodeled in an Art Deco style. It was closed on 28th April 1979.
It was eventually demolished and shops have been built on the site.
