  1. Perfect, and it still looks as if it is maintained in very good condition. Not converted into a tyre factory or a laundromat!

    1. No doubt it's been divided into smaller cinemas inside but so nice to still see it showing films.

  2. How lovely. It reminds me of the Birks in Aberfeldy, if only because that is still a cinema too.

  3. Nice. I'm always fascinated by heritage cinemas.

  4. Nowra isn't a huge town, so it is interesting that some lovely Deco buildings were built there and are still maintained. I wonder if one architect was responsible for both the picture theatre and the pair of shops (your next post).

    1. I've seen in other country towns that the same architect designed a lot of the buildings in the 1920s & 30s and used the same builder so it is certainly possible that that was the case in Nowra.
