Located on Orwell Street just a few confident steps off Macleay, from the moment the Metro-Minerva Theatre opened it became the jewel in the crown of the Kings Cross and Potts Point area that was already buzzing with galleries, cinemas, nightclubs, revues, coffee shops and fine dining establishments.The Minerva Theatre was the brainchild of renowned theatre impresario David N Martin of the Tivoli Circuit fame. One of three buildings which made up the “Minerva Centre” his vision and enterprise created an integrated suite of three buildings all of which are intact.
Media are invited to join members of the entertainment profession, supporters of heritage architecture, and concerned residents of Potts Point,
at a Rally on Sunday 5 December from 12.30pm in the Fitzroy Gardens, Kings Cross.
