The Metro Theatre, Kings Cross

By July 10, 2020News

In March 2018, when this property was for sale, I moved a Council resolution calling on the City to enter into negotiations with the relevant parties over the possible acquisition of the theatre for adaptive re-use as a theatre, film or cultural facility. The Lord Mayor Clover Moore and her team voted this down and instead moved that the Chief Executive Officer consider whether the City could assist with any viable proposal for the restoration, use and ongoing operations of the Metro as a live theatre or other cultural facility in the context of the then forthcoming cultural infrastructure strategy being prepared by the NSW Government. To date we still haven’t received an update on this matter.
