Topic: Grand Theatre

Topic type:

Existed in Tutanekai Street until 1958

" During the war years (WWII) this was converted to a dance hall, cabaret and was popular with the GI's stationed here, later it was again converted into a skating rink which apparently only lasted for 6 weeks. The building was demolished in 1958 to be replaced by a modern 2-storey office block, the ground floor being entirely occupied by Caudwell's Furniture Store." Paraphrased from Rotorua Post, 7 October 1958. The Grand Theatre was owned and operated by Mr G. Calder.

Currently this site is tenanted by Robert Harris Cafe and Backdoor store (2012).
