Brian McDonnell’s illustrated talk will take you back to the days before television, when Auckland had more than 50 movie theatres and the weekly Saturday matinee was displayed at a local suburban bughouse. Learn about the diverse cultures including migrants that pioneered cinema in Auckland – such as the Lebanese Moodabe family, whose Amalgamated Theatres has been a hugely important company.
