Orpheum Picture Palace

Home > Sydney >
Published April 30th 2009
The Orpheum Picture Palace in Cremorne (lower North Shore) was built way back in 1935 with seating for 1700 people. Truly the megaplex of the era.

After being run down over the years the Orpheum was restored to its former art-deco glory in 1987. The restoration was performed to an immaculate standard, overseen by theatre historian John Love.

Ever since then the Orpheum has been providing inestimable pleasure to thousands of cinema lovers who adore the old theatre for its ability to restore a level of romance to the moving picture experience.

The Orpheum website provides a pictorial tour which showcases just what a national treasure it is, however there is no substitute for seeing it for yourself.

You can see what's currently on show at the Orpheum here, and this page provides a good guide on how to get there.


Why? You'll never look at your local megaplex the same way again.
