Hoyts Ivanhoe Theatre 226 Upper Heidelberg Road, Ivanhoe, VIC - Proscenium 1940’s.

Located in the northeast Melbourne district of Ivanhoe. The Hoyts Ivanhoe Theatre was opened on 25th October 1924 with Reginald Denny in “A Reckless Age”. It was designed by architectural firm Kaberry & Chard and seating for 1,700 was provided on a stadium plan with a raised stepped section at the rear, rather than the usual overhanging balcony. In 1931 it was remodeled to the plans of architectural firm Taylor, Soilleux and Overend.

The Hoyts Ivanhoe Theatre was closed on 29th June 1968 with Elvis Presley in “Clambake” & “Thunderbirds Are Go”. The vacant building was demolished in 1971 and in 2016 the building on the site contains a café/bar/restaurant named ‘Vatutto’ on the ground floor and a medical centre upstairs on the first floor.
