      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.
