The National Trust of Australia, Queensland Branch is holding a
Flashback to the 50s - Frocks, Flicks and fabulous fun on 8 May 2019 5:00 PM — 9:00 PM.
They have chosen the iconic Elizabeth St Picture Theatre to hold this event and if you have not visited, this is a wonderful opportunity to admire the interior of this building. This used to be the old Irish pub and it was exquisite in the inside, as you can see from this photo.
Ascend the intricate carpet into a world of old glamour – and enjoy drinks and canapes on arrival followed by a talk by the author of What will be worn: A McWhirters Story and a private screening of the Australian film Ladies in Black.
This event is hosted by Naomi Price, one of Australia's leading cabaret and musical theatre performers. Naomi has been a proud Ambassador of National Trust of Australia (Queensland) since 2016 and will delight in judging the Best Dressed competition. So dare to wear a fabulous 50s frock or frou-frou!

Looking for my mother's fifties cocktail dress and matching handbag, as I write. Get a group of girlfriends together and enjoy a special evening. And did I mention the film? Fabulous costumes and performances which you will thoroughly enjoy dating back to exactly that era.
