Kings Cinema

ExhibitionPermanent Exhibition

The famous Kings cinema chain built many art deco cinemas in Sydney’s suburbs in the 1930s. The Kings Cinema at Powerhouse Ultimo, is a recreated 1930s-style art deco cinema. Sadly, the recreation of the Kings Cinema is only possible because so many of these old buildings have been demolished. The foyer includes interior fittings from the landmark Queen Victoria Building and the seats are from the Manly Odeon, built in 1932 and demolished in 1985.

Enjoy daily screenings of short films relating to current and recent Powerhouse exhibitions and programs.
