Hi Lesley,

Here's a link to the Hayden Orpheum Picture Place in Cremorne, Sydney:


It's a beautiful old Art Deco theatre, built in the 1930s. Its so wonderful that it was restored and is still used as a cinema. So many of these old buildings are being lost these days. Apparently it used to have a shopping mall and a gym in it. What sacriledge. Anyway, now they have six cinemas and an incredible American wurtlitzer organ inside.

Best wishes,
(Wyvern Antiques)
