Star Theatre, Hilton

Star Theatre, West Torrens

This great little theatre is on the Sir Donald Bradman Highway in Hilton, Adelaide. It is currently called Star Theatre One but has previously gone under other names.

Star Theatre, West TorrensThe deco front seems to have been added in the late 1930s to cater for the growing popularity of films. It is simple but elegant. Speedlines wrapping around the curved corners and a stepped pediment and vertical sign above the entrance.

In recent decades it has returned to live entertainment with a focus on local productions.
