The Exhibitor who ran your 30 minute featurette (One Man Bike) was the late Gordon McClelland. His family ran the Carlton Cinema from 1924. Gordon was a highly respected member of the Cinema Industry & a great supporter of Independent film-making, and a valued friend of this writer – Gordon McClelland, together with the late Baz Brownbill of the Pix Theatre Geelong, pioneered class-room school screenings in Victoria, utilizing 35mm portables – Contributed by Greg Lynch –
The building is now a vintage clothing store(Yesteryear Retro), a hamburger restaurant(New York Minute), and a graphic designer(Grosz Co Lab).
My career as a director got off to a flying start when the owner Gordon (can’t recall surname) ran my 30 minute drama “One Man Bike” as a support for Fellini’s 8 ½. How cool did that make you feel? More power to the independent cinemas. Haydn Keenan.
