Interesting to note that the patrons' seats under the roof were priced at one shilling and sixpence(and they were padded) whereas those in the open cost one shilling (wooden)– these were the charges in 1938. The opening night on Sat.January 29, 1938 saw the screening of Cecil B. De Mille’s “The Plainsman” with the support movie “Easy to Take” During the colder months, the fires (burning coke in 44 gallon drums) had to be lit at least a couple of hours before screening commenced so as the smoke would disperse!

Remember the fires in the 44 gallon drums well. Saw movie “The Egyptian” with Edmund Purdom. Interesting, information on this theatre posted by John Gleeson. I went to Marist Bros Eastwood with a “John Gleeson”!
