Fading foyer

The remaining evidence of the glory that once was Sydney's Plaza Theatre; a section of the foyer which is now the entry to a McDonalds Hamburger 'restaurant'.

In its final days as a cinema the Plaza was Sydney's home for films screened in the Cinerama format in which three projectors simultaneously projected images (side by side) onto a huge, deeply curved screen. This is the exterior of the wonderful old cinema from those days. It was being decorated in preparation for the visit to Sydney of a certain very important person.
