The Old Film Theatre with Irene

By Christine Weir October 2003

It was many years later

I visited with a friend

The Hornsby Odeon Theatre

When memories did descend

It was in a time capsule

Surroundings were all the same

The Fifties era in, so cool

I was very glad we came

I felt at home instantly

Surroundings so familiar

The years rolled backwards quickly

Better than the movie so far

The atmosphere did thrill me

The design, shapes and heavy doors

Took me to childhood clearly

And Jaffas rolling down floors

Taking décor for granted

We loved our weekend movie

As it now comes denated

In memories all groovy

Please keep up our old buildings

So oldies can reminisce

We just love seeing old things

Any gone, we sorely miss
