One of my favourite Sydney city theatres, I remember seeing the now classic Australian film, “Wake in Fright” there as well as “Straw Dogs” even though my friend and I were not quite 18 at the time. When I worked at United Artists in 1974, Pasolini’s “Canterbury Tales” played there. What a strange movie that was!

While it’s true that ‘A Hard Day’s Night’ screened at the Embassy, the Beatles' second film ‘Help!’ actually screened simultaneously at the ‘Palace’ and ‘Town’ theatres in Pitt Street.

I live in the USA and I was on R&R in Sydney in 1970 and saw M.A.S.H. at the Embassy. I guess I picked that film because I was in a MASH type unit in Vietnam. I enjoyed Sydney and its very friendly folks.

The Embassy closed in 1977.

I remmebr going to the Embassy in the 60s. It was where A Hard Days Night was shown. I think it was also where the second Beatles movie, Help, was shown.
