A walk through Naracoorte's historic Rivoli Theatre | VIDEO

There's been a surge of public interest in Naracoorte's historic Rivoli Theatre since it was listed for sale last month.

The theatre building in Naracoorte's main street has been listed for sale through Ottoson Partners Real Estate for $500,000.

The huge complex has commercial potential which has been untapped since the theatre ceased operating more than 50 years ago.

The building includes a cinema room that at one time was able to seat 990 people, but ceased operating as a theatre in the mid-1960s. While the theatre room has remained virtually untouched in half a century, the ground floor has since been used for shops.

Sarah Ottoson said Ottoson Partners planned to have an open public inspection for the theatre building soon.
