The Village Twin (1975-2002)

In it’s day, the Village Twin Cinema in Watt Street, Gosford was as fancy as it got in movie theatres. It opened just six days after the closure of the historic Regal Theatre a couple of blocks away (it has its own page on Cinema Treasures). The first movie to show was the shark attack classic, “Jaws”. The twin-cinema could seat 1,000 people — 600 in one and 400 in the other. With staggered movie times, it could show up to six different films a day. It cost more than $1m to build — huge money in those days.

One Coastie recalled its arrival on the local movie scene:

“I suppose the big thrill about the Village Twin was that it was new. All the other movie places on the coast were dusty old flea pits with horrid, battered seating that had all seen better days — or there was the drive-in at Erina. Plus it was a twin cinema so you had a choice of movies to see.”
