Restored Movie Palace

The Hayden Orpheum brought a grand movie palace to the Sydney suburbs when it opened in 1935, but endured decades of neglect once those golden days were past. In the late 1980s, Australian TV personality Mike Walsh purchased the theater and nursed it back to Art Deco glory.

Today, the Hayden Orpheum plays new releases, classic films, simulcasts, and other rich offerings on six screens. The Wurlitzer Hope-Jones Orchestral Pipe Organ, the better part of a century old and expertly played by the cinema's resident organist Neil Jensen, is an awesome accoutrement of the Main Auditorium.
