The range of largely classical music played by the orchestra during the films gives a clue as to why so many people, including my parents went to the movies. The quality of the music was a very big factor. Mr. William R. Cade, a native of Adelaide, later conducted the large orchestras of the Regent Theatres in Adelaide and then in Melbourne. I have a film of him conducting the Melbourne orchestra in selections from ‘The Desert Song’. He later returned to Adelaide as resident conductor of the South Australian Symphony Orchestra.
