Palace Theatre, featuring Dracula starring Nat Madison, circa 1929

The Palace Theatre was a theatre located on Pitt Street in the Sydney central business district. It was built in 1896 by businessman George Adams as a supplement to his Tattersall's Hotel next door; the theatre hosted live performances until the 1930s, when it was converted to a cinema. It was later switched back and forth between movies and live shows, until it closed in 1969; the building was demolished in 1970. The theatre's former lot is now covered by the Hilton Sydney.
