Theatrical traditions: stage and screen in Bendigo is the new exhibition on show at the Post Office Gallery, Bendigo. It is open from 16th October 2015 until 14th March 2016.

It showcases a range of artifacts including play bills, tickets and adverts plus a speaker box from the Golden Drive-In Theatre from the 1950s. It covers the history of stage and cinema buildings throughout time in Bendigo. If you are a lover of theatre and film it is a great exhibition to visit. I found it very intriguing as I have work at the local cinema in my hometown for the past four years. 

A full-colour exhibition catalogue is also available for purchase.
