Name of creator
Located at 189-191 Queen Street, Brisbane adjacent to His Majesty's Theatre, it was designed by Ballantyne & Hare architects in association with Hall & Prentice of Brisbane. Live performances were gradually replaced with the arrival of talking pictures, and eventually operated exclusively as a cinema. The Winter Garden continued in use as a cinema until December, 1973, then its foyer was used first as a shop, then a bank. The auditorium remained unused until it was demolished in 1981. Its site and name were incorporated in the Wintergarden Centre shopping mall.
