From the Editor....

                                                    aving recently run the gamut of Annual Leave and ill health
                                               Hon top of home and work commitments, I am pleased to
                                                finally present you with this bumper issue of Cinemarecord
                                                featuring a broad range of interesting histories, articles, memories
                                                and lots of pictures from all over Australasia!
                                                  Through a number of stories we also remember those who we
                                                have sadly recently lost. Let this be a reminder of our own
                                                immortality and I urge you to take the time to record and share your own stories and
                                                memories for future generations through these pages.
                                                  As always, my thanks go to all those who help make CinemaRecord such a good read.
                                                As Editor, I am always reliant upon new contributions from our readers and look forward to
           The official journal of the Cinema And  receiving your efforts for future editions.
