I trekked all the way from Chatswood to see Kane there. It was an excellent print. The only odd thing about the screening was a fellow who insisted everyone occupy the same seat they had before interval. This was a showing with not too many in the audience and not everyone would remember exactly which row they were in. Strange.

Bruce Dawson operated this cinema until closure in 1959 In the middle 1950’s he wanted to screen Orson Welles masterpiece CITIZEN KANE – the only print that was available at that time was 16mm. I screened the film for about a week using a Bell & Howell-Gaumont Model 601 1000w incandescent lamp projector. The film had to be screened in two parts, there being no long play device at that time. The screen results were quite acceptable (the projector was among the audience in the auditorium) The film was enjoyed by capacity houses-a great experience!!!
