The Potts Point Partnership Inc, have established the Minerva Theatre Action Group. The Group comprises individuals from the Arts, Entertainment and Business industries that want to see the local and state government revive the theatre for use in Potts Point.

Our Vision

The Metro Minerva provides an extremely rare opportunity to provide Sydney with a 1,000-seat theatre in a city desperate for theatre space.

The State’s Vision for a Kings Cross Theatre precinct and Recent City Council resolutions supporting live performance in Sydney and Kings Cross:

We applaud and support the NSW State Government’s Vision to create Kings Cross/the Eastern Edge as a theatre precinct.

The City of Sydney Council’s response to the motion proposing Council investigate the business case for future use of the Metro/Minera for live performance moved at the meeting on 19 August, 2019, is also applauded. We welcome Council’s unanimous request to the CEO, Monica Barone to continue to work with the NSW Government, the performing arts sector and other relevant stakeholders to address the severe shortage of theatres and performance spaces within Sydney; and support the continued growth of the eastern edge of the city as a theatre precinct.

We note also that on the same night Council agreed to amend its Draft Local Planning Statement to include a new action under the heading Creative precincts and to investigate the development of an emerging theatre interest in Kings Cross and Darlinghurst to support a culturally focused revitalisation of the late-night area.

The Group is a sub-committee action group on behalf of the Potts Point Partnership Incorporated.
