A great decision The Woodville Council made in making The Woodville Town Hall ….Heritage Listed….What a pity The Adelaide City Council…of long ago, didn’t make our Iconic Theatres…Heritage Listed!

The old Woody Pictures or Woody Flicks as my brother use to call it….was grand even to a 5-9yr old as i was, when my Parents would take my brother & i on a Friday night… in the 50’s,i still remember quite well, the Foyer with its Dk Brown leather couches, rich carpet leading up the stairs, beautiful Chandeliars….many Families all gathered in the Foyer…the Ticket Box on the right as you would walk in………. Saturday…..my brother who was 6yrs older than me had to have me tag along with him as we walked the 20min. something to the Woody Flicks, for an afternoon of ‘Flash Gordon’ or ‘Cowboys & Indians'or some film on Pirates. We would sit downstairs halfway & my brother’s friends would throw down Jaffas or money to buy more….what fun & memories i have of the rolling of Jaffas on the wooden Floorboards!
