In 1915, the Australian Branch of the British Red Cross collected funds for the building of Australia Hall at Pembroke, a recreation centre/theatre and annexes, to stand as a monument to the wounded ANZAC troops that were nursed in Malta. This large hall could cater for some 2000 men, in which stage productions, bingo, dances and other forms of entertainment were held. A library and reading room were later included and it was the building where the Navy, Army and Air Force Institute (NAAFI), was first established in 1921. About this time, a projection room was added for the hall to double as a cinema.
