Description: Action sequence . A restaurant is demolished . When closing up in the early hours of the morning , workers in the restaurant had difficulty opening the door . It was then that they noticed large cracks in the building . The police evacuated nearby residents and cordoned off a 400 metre segment of the road . Movement of the building continued throughout the morning . It was decided to demolish , meaning that the uninsured owner of the restaurant lost up to $200 , 000 worth of fittings and stock , as well as his income . Popular opinion placed blame on construction work for a new library and community centre taking place next door , thus exposing the 100 year old structure to the elements for the first time . The restaurant was the Indian Chilli , in the restaurant strip of Crown Street , Surry Hills , just outside the centre of Sydney , Australia
