Launceston Princess Theater

 The Princess Theatre is a classic of example of a building that has been given an Art Deco style face-lift.  The original facade was a Victorian period design, but was redesigned in the Art Deco style in the early 20th Century to good effect.  The neon lighting still glows of a night when a show is on, and walking out from a show you are greeted opposite by the Launceston Landmark Art Deco commercial Building that is Holyman House. The facade reminds me of bubble gum for some reason, perhaps it's the colour it's painted?!

  1. This is a terrific facade... it is obviously still looked after well. Was the inside deco-ised as well?
