Waverley Theatre, East Malvern, Vic

Located at 92 Waverley Road, East Malvern, Melbourne. The Waverley Theatre opened in 1938 with 1,150 seats. It was closed in 1964, and became a studio. In the mid-2000's, it was converted into apartments.

    I inspected the theatre on Sun.18.2.96 with a Cinema Theatre Historical Society group.
    The studio was for rehearsal's for ABC's (national radio) orchestra.
    It was signed ABC Royal Theatre.
    Just about all original detail had survived (except for the seats).
    Our guide was very proud of the authentic art-deco internal colours. My memory is of mainly green.

    IIRC ABC had vacated already; the building was for sale.
