Metro Theatre, Potts Point restoration

Metro Theatre, Potts Point restoration

Restoring the old art deco Metro theatre at 30 Orwell Street, Potts Point was a challenging but very rewarding job.

Designed by Bruce Dellit in 1939 and previously known as The Minerva Theatre, it hasn’t had a thorough painting job for over 30 years.

In addition to the poor condition of the services, it was very difficult to access.
The narrow streets around the theatre meant that we could not use scaffolds for mechanical bedrooms. The only method we could use was rope access.

We’ve put together a video detailing the job and revealing the final result. I hope you enjoy!

    I have loved this building since we would all go to the Cross in the 70's. Wonderful building and I have always thought it could be the Premier nightclub in the country should anyone ever decide to do it. I think maybe it is currently an office style ?? Not sure and its next door to the Roosevelt, two old ladies just waiting to come top life.
