  • Sofie Bribiesca,

    I do believe that was my fault.Hey it was dark, and everyone kept moving all over the place like a mad woman's ...and I never got round to the tripod, but I got some great techy type shots. Maybe I'll show those Russ :))

  • Jackie Clark,

    So is Jackie a better photographer than Steve, or was she just less hungover?

    Need you ask? I am a paragon of virtue, no hangover to be found. Now, I want to see Fiona's photos. She took what looked like some very interesting shots.

  • Malcolm Ibell,

    I just had a sudden rush of brains to the head, (amazing for a sunday evening I know) and realised that there are excerpts from The Mighty Civic documentary here at NZ On Screen.

    Where do you normally keep them?

  • Malcolm Ibell,

    In a small plastic zip-lock bag in my camera case :)

    ... which remained alone in the middle of the stage, completely unused, for the entire tour – camera, not brain.

  • Sacha,

    Thanks so much, Malcolm for the tour and for the company. Very much enjoyed the after-function and meeting even more PAS folk. What a week.

    My favourite moment was when the "sky" opened.

    Hell yeah. And the vertiginous vistas. And the silent shooting star. Someone needs to bring a video camera next time.

    Now, I want to see Fiona's photos.

    And Geoff's.

  • dyan campbell,

    Yes, thank you Malcolm from me & Paul too - we had a great time, it was wonderful meeting everyone. What a wonderful way to spend the afternoon. We loved chatting to everyone afterwords too.

    The tour was fantastic! Best part - climbing out over the stage on those slats and looking down - and also Malcolm trying to explain the Civic Lions are actually Asiatic panthers while Jim & I cheerfully kept contradicting him. Jim pointed out more people might believe that if the Civic lions weren't painted gold but black and I agreed, especially if didn't also have tufty tails and manes... and weren't... obviously lions and not panthers.

    Will do, as soon as. I don't have a current Flickr account and will need to remedy that--unless there is another way of posting them. Anyway, they are a rather perverse collection of notices and signs, and certainly couldn't match Jackie's

  • Geoff Lealand,

    ..and talking of lovely cinemas, I have just been to the new Lido, which has opened in Hamilton, on the site of the Rialto, which closed a year ago. Decorated with style and grace and so more pleasing than yer average cineplex. We now have 17 screens in Hamilton, which is quite enough.

    I wonder if that "winter dance party" ever went ahead.

  • Malcolm Ibell,

    Brilliant photos Geoff. Love the foyer ones... and the world needs more photos of obscure signs – I'm not being facetious either:)

    Oh, and the Buddy Holly poster is actually only about 6 years old. It's a prop from the musical Buddy .

    I'd dearly like to find some of the old movie posters from the early days of the Civic. I guess they've all disappeared – I do, however, have a couple of dozen that I rescued from the St James.

    That figures--it did look too shiny to be from the 1950s. Loved the tour--many, many thanks for organising it.

    Surely someone snapped "Beware of the grid monsta"?
