The theatre is one of the most intact art deco cinemas in Australia.

The Como Theatre was renamed the Cygnet Theatre in 1968.

In 2013 the theatre got a $100,000 State Government heritage grant used to upgrade wiring and to install a digital projector.

The site is being sold by Mr Stiles’ son through Rob Selid of Burgess Rawson and Bryan Cousins of Allied Property Consultant.

The site is leased on a monthly basis as a single screen cinema as part of the Grand Cinemas franchise.

Offers on the property at 12-16 Preston Street close November 22.
