The Hayden Orpheum Picture Palace

The Hayden Orpheum Picture Palace

Without doubt the grandest cinema in Sydney, Cremorne’s art deco picture palace is a stunning step back in time. Built in 1935 by George Kenworthy, the top theatrical architect of the period, today’s version is even glitzier than the original thanks to a $2.5-million restoration some years back by owner and local TV celeb Mike Walsh. Each of the six auditoria has its own colour scheme and decor, but the 729 seat Orpheum is the true star of the show. It even has a genuine Wurlitzer cinema organ, which rises out of a stage pit on weekend evenings complete with flashing lights and a grinning organist. Expect a mix of mainstream US, British and Australian fare, with some art-house and foreign and lots of special presentations, inlcuding retro film nights and live shows.
