29Apr15 Council Newsletter

You are invited to the Sawtell Cinema!  Visit us on Friday 15 May between 11am and 2pm for a last chance to see the cinema as it once was….and your first chance to see items up for auction!

We can’t keep all of the Cinema’s treasures….which means you have a chance to buy a piece of Sawtell history.  The auction commences at 10am on Saturday 16 May.  On the blocks will be a vintage popcorn machine, banks of cinema seats, stage curtains, movie posters and more.  Click here to see the full list of what’s going under the hammer.

As a very special treat local artist John Van Der Kolk has transformed two of the cinema seats into incredible pieces of heritage art.  Not only do these works of art provide you with inspiration should you choose to bid for one of the banks of seats on auction….they will actually come under the hammer themselves.  Pick up a local masterpiece as well as a piece of local history!

We look forward to welcoming you back to the Sawtell Cinema.  Click here for a copy of the brochure.
