Tourism - Roseville, NSW
Roseville Cinemas located in Roseville is one of the few surviving independent cinemas in Sydney's suburbs.
Roseville Cinemas has been an iconic fixture of the North Shore community. The building was originally founded in the early 1900's by Kuring-Gai council to be named as the Town Hall of the area. It was used for festivities and dances, a meeting spot for locals, and for Roseville College events. When World War I broke out, the first Australian enlistment drive for soldiers was held in this building.
After the war in 1919, it changed its name to Traynor's Picture Palace, and thus began the story to becoming the cinema we know and love dearly. DB O'Connor, (a pioneer in Australian film production,) refurbished it in beautiful Art Deco style to a large theatre with a seating capacity of over 500 people in 1936.
Roseville Cinemas building is one of the few remaining independent cinemas in Sydney's suburbs, opposing the encroachment of multiplexes by dedication to showing a range of top-quality local and foreign films, and continues to be an important part of the community.
