The Capitol Theatre Sydney Australia was opened in 1928. It was a "atmospheric" picture palace for many years., The design has an effect of an internal Italian garden or piazza. It also featured an internal imitation courtyard which is the only one surviving in Sydney. In the 1990s it underwent a major refurbishment and the Capitol Theatre is today a major 2000-seat Sydney theatre venue particularly suited for the presentation of musical plays.

Angus O'Callaghan's Melbourne

Forty years ago Angus O'Callaghan chronicled the ordinary life of Melbourne, then his pictures were forgotten, consigned to a shoebox. Rediscovered they reveal a lost world, one that intrigues today's young collectors who are pushing prices for the prints higher and higher.
