309 Parliament St - 2 - March 17, 1986

Another of those interesting examples where the after image is also the before image. I always knew this as the Parliament Cinema. And when it closed, it was a booze can, despite the fact, or in spite of the fact, that a police station was right behind it, one street over!! It was only after the building was closed and boarded up that the pre-Parliament Cinema signage was revealed. Built as the Bluebell it became the Gay in the post-war era, and, finally, the Parliament.
