Narooma Cinemas, (Kinema) (why is it called Kinema a question asked by many) Kinema comes from the Greek meaning " moving" - hence moving pictures. However, over time the "K" became a "C".
It wasn't unusual to see Cinemas named Kinemas prior to the 1950's (there are still a few like us named Kinema around the world).
The "Kinema" has become an icon in Narooma with its art deco influence and ambience, is something appreciated by locals and tourists alike.
Narooma Cinemas (Kinema) is housed in the historic Soldiers Memorial School of Arts Hall which has been placed on the National Heritage Register because of its significance to the Community. Screening films since 1928 is the 4th oldest cinema screening films in Australia. The character of this Edwardian building has been maintained, enter the foyer and you can feel its charm. Walk into the main theatre, Cinema 1 and you are in yesteryear. Enter the boutique Cinema 2 and you feel its touch of gold.
