On 2nd November 1969, Perth’s Sunday Times reported that: The Town Cinema will be a single floor theatre – new overseas trends have swung away from those with balconies.

Heated and cooled for climatic comfort, projection equipment will permit the screening of 16, 35 and now popular 70mm films on a screen 40ft wide by 17ft high.

The cinema itself is 47ft wide and 90ft long.

A dished floor will give each person in the audience a full and unrestricted view of the screen.

Comfortable seats with padded armrests will permit complete relaxation. The cinema will be fully carpeted and draped. In fact the carpets will extend up the walls to dado height.

Six-track stereophonic sound will flow from 20 speakers around the walls and behind the screen.

The sound design will also permit the constant flow of soothing mood music or the film sound track into the foyer of the hotel.
