Hayden Orpheum Picture Palace

Time Out says

Without doubt the grandest cinema in Sydney, Cremorne’s Art Deco picture palace is a stunning step back in time. Built in 1935 by George Kenworthy, the top theatrical architect of the period, today’s version is even glitzier than the original thanks to a $2.5-million restoration some years back by owner and local TV celeb Mike Walsh. Each of the six auditoria has its own colour scheme and decor, but the 744-seat Orpheum is the true star of the show. It even has a genuine Wurlitzer cinema organ, which rises out of a stage pit on weekend evenings complete with flashing lights and a grinning organist. Expect a mix of mainstream US, British and Australian fare, with some art-house, special presentations and the occasional cabaret show.

This summer, they’re bringing ice cream and activism to towns and cities across New South Wales – and inviting you to get in on the sweet action.  For the past four years, Ben & Jerry’s Aussie team have focused their activism energy on partnering with grass (and sea) roots NGOs to stop new oil and gas developments. Their latest campaign is dedicated to raising awareness about a potentially devastating fossil fuel operation set to be performed off the coast of Australia. The fossil fuel operation – which will be the largest seismic blasting operation the world has ever seen – would release airgun powered blasts into the ocean every ten seconds for up to 400 days. The blasts used in seismic procedures are louder than the atomic bomb detonated at Hiroshima, and pose huge risks to marine life (including lobsters, who have been found to suffer serious concussion as a result).  To spread the message about the risks that this potential operation poses, Ben & Jerry’s have partnered with Surfrider Foundation Australia for a three-month campaign involving film screenings, ice-cream giveaways and one mammoth bike ride (more on that here). The film – directed by award-winning director Matty Hannon – features legendary Australian free-surfer Torren Martyn, inte
