The Climax Cinema was an adult cinema operating in the late-1970’s. Located in the Hockley district of the city centre. By July 1999 it had re-opened as the Gallery Lounge Cinema, showing classic and cult films. In 2002 it re-opened as as the Screen Room. It was advertised as the ‘World’s Smallest Cinema’. It played the latest 1st run films and was very popular, always filling its 21 seats. It was equipped to run 35mm film, DVD and video. The Screen Room was closed in late-December 2010.

After several years closure it re-opened in 2014 as Screen 22, screening independent films.

Looking at various pages on the internet regarding the Terrace Theatre, Tinonee, NSW it seems to be a 120 years old building, which has many antique artifacts on display. It screens old newreels and some modern movies. Several web sites mention it is closed and will re-open in January 2007. Whether this happened I am not sure. It seems to be a sort of tourist novelty for the small town it is located in and even goes by the name Terrace Cinema Museum.

On the other hand the Screen Room is a regular public cinema, screening new first run movies concurrent with the local multiplexes.

According to the photo I took in May 2012 the cinema appears to have been renamed Screen 22 sometime before closing. When I visited the Screen Room, soon after it had opened, I booked well in advance, bearing in mind how small it was – and, you guessed it, no one else turned up for that show! The cinema used rear projection, with the projector backing up to the white boarded window in my photo.
