Interesting, I had heard somewhere or other that Sydney beaches had anti landing stuff on them at that date, clearly none at Coogee. Only a couple of weeks from the Midget submarine raid in the harbour.

That’s a lot of swimmers and sunbathers on Coogee Beach for mid-June in any year, let alone 1942.

Probably a heat wave and hence the photo.

The Metro Theatre in Kings Cross
26-30 Orwell Street, Sydney, NSW 2011

The Metro King’s Cross was originally part of a live entertainment complex called the Minerva Centre. This consisted of the Minerva Theatre, The Minerva Cafe and Nightclub (later the 2KY radio studios) and Metro Chambers, an office and apartment building. It was built for MGM Studios as part of a chain of cinemas.

The buildings were designed by architect C. Bruce Dellit in 1937, who had also been responsible for the Liberty Theatre in Pitt Street in the city. Building was executed by the architectural firm of Crick and Furse who most notably were responsible for the Kings circuit of theatres.

The whole exterior and interior design was in the clean Streamline Moderne style utilising various surface planes that were lit in imaginative ways.

The stage was deep and incorporated full flying facilities and plentiful dressing rooms. There was an orchestra pit and the projection box contained all the necessary equipment for movies as well as providing accommodation for the follow spots and lighting board.

There was no expense spared in building this beautiful theatre and it incorporated every possible modern feature as well as having perfect acoustics. The theatre was air-conditioned and carpeted throughout.

MGM sold the their entire Australian operation to Greater Union who continued live performances in tandem with the odd film revivalbefore the theatre was sold in 1979










The site stood empty and forlorn until it was purchased in 1982 to become a soundstage and recording facility by Kennedy Miller, producers of Mad Max, Babe, and Happy Feet.

You can still peer through the doors and see the elegant lobby looking pretty much as it did 50 years ago and it sometime turns up as a location in films, TV or pop video. You can no longer see films at the Metro Kings X; they are being made there instead.
