Prince of Wales Theatre 254-258 Murray Street, Perth, WA – Setting up the turn table for the first talkie.

The Prince of Wales was one of the two cinemas to introduce sound films to Perth in 1929, while the Regent screened The Red Dance in (1928) using variable density sound-on-film, which contained music and no recorded dialogue, the Prince of Wales presented Warner’s The Jazz Singer using the Vitaphone sound-on-disc, though this movie was mostly silent, with segments of recorded dialogue and lip sync songs. The quality of the the sound-on-disc was then superior to the early sound-on-film, though this was to change with the development of variable area sound-on-film – Contributed by Greg Lynch –
