Photo of the day – Kings Cinema Foyer


 

Powerhouse Museum – Sydney

 

Interior of the foyer of the Kings Cinema in the Powerhouse Museum, Sydney. This is an art deco cinema similar to those of the 1930s. It has been built to look like the original theatres of the Kings Cinema chain. In the theatre you can watch Australian newsreels and films from the 1920s and 1930s and hear the sounds of a Fotoplayer, which is a mechanical musicmaker used to provide the accompaniment for silent films.

  1. Good shot and sounds like a good place to visit. I’m ashamed of never been there having stayed in NSW for a couple of years😦
