Embassy Cinema

Originally opened in 1915 as the 1,000-seat Empire Cinema. It was re-modeled in 1936 in an Art Deco style by noted architectural firm Crick & Furse, who were also working on the new Savoy Cinema just along the road. It re-opened as the Embassy Cinema in 1936.

The Embassy Cinema was closed during the worst of the winter months each year, and hardly ever played to full houses except during peak holiday periods in the summer’s, when visitors flock to this town located in the beautiful World Heritage Listed, Blue Mountains area.

It was closed in March 1954 and was converted into a Coles convenience store. It continues in retail use today, and the remains of the auditorium decorations still exist above the false ceiling which has been inserted.
