A night at the movies – At the Coliseum deLuxe
Narrated by award winning director, Bruce Beresford, the first part of this Anthony Buckley film traces the history of Australian popular entertainment over a period of 150 years.
The film then focuses on two iconic North Sydney entertainment venues which once existed side-by-side on Miller Street; today only the Independent Theatre remains.
In true movies style, pre-film refreshments will include popcorn and jaffas, with celebratory bubbles and soft drinks.
At interval, ice creams will be available for all movie-goers.
This will be a great celebration of an iconic area of North Sydney's heritage.

About the North Shore Historical Society
The Society, founded in 1958, aims to promote both public knowledge and research into local history, including the way in which the histories of the City of Sydney and the NSW State have impacted the development of the North Shore.
The Society accomplishes its objectives through regular monthly meetings, visits to historical sites, and walks exploring regional history. It also financially supports History Prizes for local school students.
The Society assists Council in many matters, including the provision of plaques at historical sites.
The Society's archives and research files are available in the Heritage Centre (Stanton Library), plus advice and support can be sourced from others with particular interests or expertise.
