Previous Names: Roma Theatre
The Globe Newsreel Theatre was built by the Virgona family along with the World Theatre, also on George Street. The Globe Newsreel Theatre was the largest of the news theatres and sported a mini-cinema Art Deco style look. It had a good location being next to the Plaza Theatre and Century Theatre and across from the Regent Theatre and Victory Theatre.
In the 1950’s the Globe Newsreel Theatre survived a scandal involving hookers plying their trade in the front stalls. Like others news theatres it switched to feature films briefly, and by 1968 was operating as the Roma Theatre.
Closed and demolished along with adjacent shops when the Metro Theatre was built on the site.
