Remember visiting this hall on a school excursion a number of times to see (boring) “educational documentaries”, while being thrilled by foyer daybills advertising what was screening on Fri/Sat nights. Probably a 16mm house, can’t imagine 35mm equipment ever being installed in this community hall, which, at the time, Doncaster was like the back-of-beyond, unlike the thriving community it is today. Sad though that this bluestone building was not preserved for historical listing and appreciation.
