Event Details:

The Inner West was the home to an array of cinemas beginning with early suburban houses between 1909-1920 by obtaining a Licence for the entertainments and meetings in temporary structures and unlicensed structures.

From the 1920's larger, more accommodating cinemas sprung up seating anywhere between 1000-2000 people with over 50 cinemas in the Inner West between 1898-1960. This exhibition will explore this popular pastime of locals, capturing the colourful memories and images of the large and engaged audiences with the majesty of buildings.
