Before Foxtel and Netflix, seeing a movie meant a night out on the town with a choc top and bag of popcorn.

Since the doors first swung open at ‘The Roxy Cinema Complex’ Nowra, in 1935, the has building has extended, adding 4 new theatres to the complex. But although the original building has grown, a large portion of the cinema experience has remained the same.

Mason Solley has worked at the cinema for five years and although the experience has changed he still believes it’s one worth having.

 

 

A huge thank you to Mason for taking the time to talk to me!

Check out the interview discussing the 17 years it took to finish ‘Max Max: Fury Road’, as well as the new characters, stunts, creation of the Wasteland, and feminism. This is my “Pick of the Week”:
