For many years this building also contained the Grand Theatre – which had a seating capacity of 1,500 and one of the largest stages in the country. It had an elaborate interior design; brass rails, velvet curtains, two tiers of private balcony boxes and ornate plaster work. Alas all now gone, during an interior renovation in 1965, the stage and much of the original ornate decor was encased or removed. Much of the original architectural heritage of the building has been lost including the tin cornice. The building has survived several demolition and site redevelopment plans.
