This is the former Apollo Theatre in Macau, near Senado Square. It dates from 1935, the first film shown was The Merry Widow on 2nd Feb 1935 and, by design, it had shops and apartments at the front and an auditorium on the ground floor at the rear. The Apollo name can still be seen on the corner of the building near the Esprit ad.
MELBOURNE ART DECO
In 2009 Robin Grow published a book on Melbourne Art Deco, with images largely supplied by David Thompson. The book quickly sold out and he is pleased to say that it has now been re-published by Brolga Press, with updates, errors corrected and a new cover.
Best of all, it is selling for about $25 in the shops and on-line. Art Deco & Modernism Society members can purchase a copy from me for $22, (includes postage within Australia). For overseas orders please email for postage rates. Contact me at email@example.com if you are interested, and advise if you would like the book to be dedicated and/or signed.
