There is much activity in this building at the moment and the new owners have plans to re-build onto the back part of the building that had to be demolished for safety reasons.

My Grandfather George Halliday, built the Merthyr Picture Palace in 1921, on the site of the Village Twin Cinema, Brunswick Street New Farm. It was open roofed, and my father Mervyn, worked in the ticket office. He told us many stories as children; how my grandfather got some opposition from another local cinema owner, by questioning the accuracy of the surveying of the outside wall. The Brisbane City Council cleared my grandfather, as it was just an attempt to delay the cinemas opening. George Halliday went on to open the Halliday’s Turkish Baths, on a rooftop of a high rise building in the heart of Brisbane. For more information, go to http://www.dhptv.com/dhptv/Tributes.html
