George Street, theatre

The George Street Theatre is one of the few surving heritage buildings in what was the theatre district. It is a stucco building in the Californian Spanish Mission style. The building housed a 'Planet Hollywood' restaurant back in the 1990s. The globe that was used by the once popular chain throughout the world has been retained by the current tenant, the 'Star Bar'. A gelato shop and fast food restaurant occupy the ground floor.

  2. What a pity a Mcdonalds reigns in this pretty building. It should stage soirees with chamber music, elegant dining, ladies and gentlemen in animated conversation, the perfume of exotic flowers and so much more of a long departed time.
