New Mentone Theatre  188 Nepean Highway, Mentone, VIC - Australia - Stairs to the Lounge / Dress circle

Image – Front foyer and stairs leading to the Lounge / Dress-circle

Downstairs a spacious foyer surrounded the grand staircase that led to the Lounge and Dress Circle where wide soft leather seats gave comfort to the patrons willing to pay extra. Tickets cost 3 shillings and threepence for the Lounge, the Dress Circle admission was 2 shillings and five pence, while downstairs you paid 2 shillings for back stalls and 1 shilling and threepence for front stalls. In the upstairs section there was an open area outside the actual Lounge and Dress Circle where movie patrons could sit and enjoy a drink or a smoke at interval. Carpets here were luxurious and a baby grand piano often provided music to add a touch of class. The murals were reputed to have been painted by Lydford who had an artistic talent and wanted to put a personal stamp on the building in addition to the structural design of the building that he had created - Courtesy of Kingston Local History – Contributed by Greg Lynch –
