The Golden Film Festival

Fifty seems to mean 'films' around here. This week at least.

You see, one of the local independent cinema chains has a 'Birthday Club' which offers members $5 films the week of their birthday. And there are rather a lot of films on my list of things to see. So I'll be spending a lot of time this week sitting in the dark feeling frugal.

Speaking of cinemas, here's Lewis's latest creation, The Egyptian cinema, on display at the Sydney Show:
Modern dolls' house miniature cinema facade.
Two men standing in front of a modern dolls' house miniature cinema facade, having a discussion.
Man making final adjustments to figures in front of a modern dolls' house miniature cinema facade.
And a quick video to show the full awesomeness of the lighting:

I forgot to take a photo of the inside of the ticket booth, but it contains the story details I've come to expect from Lewis, such as the counter top being worn down in the middle, and a half-finished lunch sitting in the corner.
Box office in the foyer of a modern dolls' house miniature cinema.
And outside the lobby there's a whole story happening, involving a certain time-travelling dwarf:
Three figures in front of a modern dolls' house miniature cinema lobby. One man is attacking an usherette, the other is holding a marionette.

Hi, I am having fun roaming around blogland this evening. You had a birthday, sorry I missed it - #50 looks like it going to be a glamorous year by the sparkly number 50 in your house. Hope you had a good day.

Thanks for taking time to post pics of the cinema from the Sydney show. I always enjoy seeing what captures attention at shows around the world.
Read that Canberra may have had a fair bit of rain. Hope you got only what you wanted.
Regards Janine
