further info on the zany shindig shack

from the wentworth courier...
'A Woollahra Council urban designer, Tom Jones, said the sign most likely dated from the early 1960s, when the former theatre masqueraded as a dance hall and a nightclub.
Formerly the venue for an open-air theatre, a 1500-seat building with a facade decorated in the classic style was constructed on the site in 1929.
The building was more than twice as high as its neighbours, making it an instant local landmark, and it continued as a theatre until the early 1960s, when local dancers descended to tread the boards.'
