The Kenilworth Theatre first appears in the 1923 Hamilton City Directory, making a 1922 construction date most likely.

From approximately 1967 on-wards the Kenilworth Theatre became a Ukrainian Cultural Centre. It had closed as a cinema in the mid 1960s.

You could still see the ladder on the side of the building that led to the projection booth, and the ticket booth survived in the lobby area.

About ten years ago, the marquee was finally removed.

The building operated as a facility for banquets, weddings, meetings, music and community theatre, until sadly, it was completely destroyed by a fire in April 2019.

The status should now be updated to demolished.
