taken at the entrance of the Kings cinema exhibition at the Powerhouse Museum, Sydney, NSW.
The cinema has been built to look like the original theatres of the famous Kings cinema chain. Kings built many art deco cinemas in Sydney’s suburbs in the 1930s. Sadly this exhibition is only possible because so many of our old buildings have been demolished. The foyer includes interior fittings from the Queen Victoria Building. The seats are from the Manly Odeon, built in 1932 and demolished in 1985.
