Hi Dimity,
I think you are misinterpreting Graham's posting on the State Skating Rink at Red Hill - this was in the mid to late 1960's after the introduction of television to Brisbane in 1959 had led to the demise of suburban cinemas - long after the 1916-17 period of your original posting. Have you tried searching the newspapers on Trove on the national library site? I did a quick search and at - the Brisbane Courier Saturday 17 March 1917 had advertisements for 2 skating rinks - The Glideway Skating Rink, Melbourne Street,South Brisbane, and the Colosseum Rink, Brunswick Street, New Farm.
