A Theatre Worthy of Auckland
With supreme confidence in the future of Auckland, and with gratitude to those who have toiled with me in this great Endeavour, I present to my fellow citizens the consumation of an ideal - the creating of a place of entertainment symbolising the progressive spirit of our beautiful city.
Imposing as the structure is, it reflects but to a minor degree the effort and energy that have gone with its erection. All that human ability, genius and mechanical assistance could contribute has been used without stint to create a theatre worthy of the Queen City of the Domain.
In dedicating the Civic to the thousands who love edifying amusement in the most appropriate of settings, I await the verdict of my patrons with confidence.
Yours to make Auckland a bigger and brighter city,
Thomas A O'Brien
