There was a ticket seller at this location with a rather enormous hair-do. Very tall.When the Bercy the lady moved to a similar job at the Greater Union Russel Street. Quite a sight.
Delightfully renovated in the 2010’s.
That lobby looks a treat.
Why Camden you ask.
Caulfield South was first known as Camden Town.
Was converted into a ten pin bowl (Brunswick Bowl) after being a cinema, but that failed and it’s now an indoor bowls club. In its time it was Melbourne’s third biggest cinema; only the Regent in Collins Street (extant) and the Palais St Kilda (extant) were / are bigger. The dress circle of the Camden is still in situ. As you’d expect, it’s upstairs via what appear to be original staircase, and is a comfy place to watch the bowls. The club is open in the cooler months only.
Current May 2018.
