Classic Cinema

ITN Architects


Paying respect to the oldest continuously operating cinema in Australia, open since 1911, the geometric patterning of the wall panels are derived from the remnant mosaic tiling of the original foyer floor. The design riffs on the idea of ‘classic’, drawing on Roman three-dimensional tile patterns in pop cartoon proportions.
