Fairfield City Museum & Gallery is looking for projectionists or employees of cinemas and picture palaces established in Fairfield to help them with a new exhibition.
Fairfield on Film, which will open 25 November at Fairfield City Museum & Gallery, will highlight Fairfield’s cinema and filmmaking history. It will trace the emergence of young filmmakers who tell stories from their own perspective to inspire youth interested in the arts industry.
The exhibition will feature an array of historic images, films and objects.
To help put the exhibition together however they need help from the local community.
Members of local clubs or groups who produce movies or people who regularly attended screenings at old picture palaces in the area are also encouraged to contact the Fairfield City Museum & Gallery to share their memories.
Community members who are able to loan cinema-related objects and photographs for the duration of the six-month exhibition should also get in contact.
Historic and former theatres and cinemas in Fairfield City include The Crescent Cinema, The Fairfield Picture Palace, The Plaza Theatre and The Protea Cinema in Cabramatta, later renamed The Royal.
Those who are able to offer assistance can call the Fairfield City Museum & Gallery on 9725 0190 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
