The Beast of Belgrave Square

by Stanley Walsh

The Music Hall Theatre Restaurant was a popular entertainment venue located in Neutral Bay, Sydney, New South Wales, which operated from 1961 to 1980. Built in 1921, the building was formerly known as Hoyts Southern Cross cinema, and also spent a short period of time in the late 1950′s operating as a skating rink.

Melbourne impresario George Miller and his wife Lorna opened the converted cinema at 154 Military Rd, Neutral Bay, in 1961. The stalls were replaced with dining tables and the venue had a capacity of 500.

During 1964 Sydney actress Marcia Hathaway played the role of the second Mrs Carlisle in a revival of East Lynne. On 11 November that year—coincidentally the same day that Mavis Bramston premiered on Sydney TV—Ms Hathaway was fatally mauled by a shark while wading in shallow water at Sugarloaf Bay in Sydney’s Middle Harbour.

The Music Hall closed in 1980 due to fire safety issues and the building was demolished. The site is now occupied by a low-rise shop and office complex.
