George Street, theatre

The former Plaza Theatre along George Street is one of the few surviving heritage buildings in what was the theatre district. It is a stucco building in the Spanish Baroque 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.


  1. It looks amazingly! The old style and the new! Great capture!

  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.


Thanks for visiting my blog. Please leave me a message. Jim.
