The Collaroy Cinema is located at 1097 Pittwater Road in Collaroy. It is a rare surviving example of an interwar Art Deco cinema built in 1938 to a design by J.C. Rennie Bartle.
The builder was C.A. Bullivant.
The Collaroy Cinema was built for Casmi Theatres Pty Ltd who wanted "a modern theatre with all the features...considered essential..."
They obviously achieved their goal leaving future generations with such a fine example of a classic Art Deco theatre.
It was originally called the "De Luxe Theatre".
