One of the first screenings in Western Australia were screened from a room of the Railway Hotel on the side wall of the old Taxation building by Jack Coulder on 20th October 1900. These movie screenings didn’t last long as the local council and police strongly disaproved of the screenings as the flickering pictures often scared the horse-drawn conveyances travelling along the street. The Railway Hotel was built and opened in 1847. The Railway Hotel was demolished against heritage orders in 1992. The facade was saved and ordered to be restored. The facade is still there in front of a new apartment complex(Medina, now called Adina Apartment complex).
