Some photos from the Society’s visit to
the Avondale Hollywood cinema during
the October meeting.
Our sincere thanks and appreciation to
Robin Gee for taking time to show us
around the cinema, which is currently

under restoration as a proposed events centre. The
days of being a commercial cinema are gone, but
they do intend to show films there from time to time.
Next year marks the 150th anniversary of the building of the old wooden hall next door, one many still
remember as Avondale’s library from the 1930s to
the early 1970s.
