Here is a side view of St Kilda's Palais Theatre. It doesn't look much from the side. The view is across a car park and a bomb site where an extremely ugly annex was demolished.
I went to a night club in the annex once. It was called Bassline and that was what we got, bass, lots of it. The type that vibrates your teeth. We found a chill out room, and that had different music and was a bit quieter, but still the music from the main area blasted, so we had two pieces of music playing, with one being very loud. We did not stay long because we felt a little uncomfortable among the zombie like dancers who were dancing alone with glazed looks in their eyes. Clearly we needed more than a drink and a smoke to get that eye glazed look.
Th other Palais visit was many years before when we went to see Debbie Reynolds perform. How gay was that! She was good though.
City of Port Phillip has approved a monster development to be built next to the Palais. I don't like the plans and not many it would seem do. I don't think that there is a silent majority who like the plans. You can find out about development from this anti Triangle deveopment website. Take a look at the front page at least and see the area to be re-developed.
But the Palais is a pretty nice buidling and well worth restoration. Only today I noticed an un-sympathetic addition, just above front overhang. That would have to go. It is nice to see the red Palais Threatre sign from our lounge room lit up at night. It means the old girl is getting some use, but that doesn't happen too often.
