Restoring 'The Cheaters', a 1929 silent film by the pioneering McDonagh sisters.
It was 70 years ago – on 10 September 1950 – that the 23-year-old Joan Sutherland won a major singing competition that helped set her on the road to international stardom.
In 1929, Hoyts – with help from Studebaker and the Shell Oil Company – loaded cinema sound equipment onto a truck so regional Australia could experience the latest in 'talking pictures'.
