From 1914, the site was occupied by the open-air cinema People’s Own Pictures (POPs), to be replaced by the current building, which, during the 1940s, was known as the State Theatre. Then, in 1964 the building was transformed into a ‘sound lounge’ and teen music venue known as Teen City before becoming the Red Hill Skate Arena in 1965.
In the early hours of the morning on Boxing Day 2002, the skate arena was set alight by an arsonist and from that day on, the burnt-out hulk remained there gradually deteriorating until 2017 when it was bought by the owners of Yatala Drive-In, New Farm Cinemas and the Elizabeth Picture Theatre in the CBD.

3D Laser Scanning
We understand the importance of accuracy, especially when working on remote and difficult to reach locations. Too often issues arise due to poor base plans or incorrect measurements. At JDA, we record 3D laser scans of landscapes, existing buildings and heritage landmarks to capture, explore, measure, and design into with millimeter precision.
