Theatre that flouted apartheid laws on block

Weekend Argus (Saturday Edition) - - PROPERTY -

THE LUXURAMA Theatre in Wyn­berg, which saw decades of film, theatre and con­certs as well as po­lit­i­cal scan­dal, is due to be auc­tioned this month.

Clare­mart Group new busi­ness man­ager An­drew Edelstein: “The Lux hosted many lo­cal and for­eign mu­sos and per­form­ers and was the cin­ema of choice for lovers of Kung Fu and West­ern films of the 1970s. The theatre flouted apartheid laws by al­low­ing mixed-race au­di­ences at shows and screen­ings de­spite fear of reprisal.

“This once pop­u­lar land­mark movie house and en­ter­tain­ment venue has huge devel­op­ment po­ten­tial. The 4 115m prop­erty, at 77 Park Road and its ad­join­ing piece of va­cant land, are near shops and schools, and close to Wit­te­bome rail­way sta­tion.”

The prop­erty may be viewed by ap­point­ment and will be auc­tioned at the Radis­son Ho­tel in Granger Bay, on November 27 at 12.30pm. Call Edelstein on 021 425 8822 or see www.clare­mart.co.za.
