The Gala became well known in it’s later years for screening high quality “art-house” films such as “Easy Rider”, “The Last Picture Show”, “The Conversation” and the Australian film “Libido”
One of my favourite Sydney city theatres, I remember seeing the now classic Australian film, “Wake in Fright” there as well as “Straw Dogs” even though my friend and I were not quite 18 at the time. When I worked at United Artists in 1974, Pasolini’s “Canterbury Tales” played there. What a strange movie that was!
The very sad end for the Sydney Regent sitting forlorn and unloved. It looked this way for a number of years before being demolished in 1990.
This photo was taken from the rear of the Regent in 1990 with demolition underway.
