1964 Cinema Center

Architect and client looking to the future, cartoon by Michael Lodge.

Shops, offices and a 500-seat cinema had to be accommodated on a small downtown site. The cinema theatre was placed underground using the "City of London" regulation. This was the first and only cinema totally underground in Australia.
