Tell everybody! This would have been one amazing deal when the cinema was at the heart of New Zealand entertainment. Sir Robert Kerridge began buying cinemas in 1926, picking up pace when solo operators folding during the Great Depression. By the late 1940s he controlled over 130 cinemas and sold a 50% stake in his company to the British 'J Arthur Rank Organisation' for just under one million pounds and a Rolls Royce car.

Slides like this one were shown during intermission in Kerridge-Odeon theatres to drum up repeat business!
