Mayfair, 170 Thomas Street, Dandenong, undated.

This is the Mayfair Cinema (previously called The Boomerang) that used to be at 170 Thomas Street, Dandenong (where the old Target store later stood, and the new Council Buildings/Library now stand.
It first opened in 1924 as The Boomerang, and was renamed The Mayfair in 1951.

My Dad took the original photo (this is a photo of that). He started work there as an Assistant Projectionist when he was 16 (1950) and went on to show movies at various Cinemas & Drive-Ins until his mid-60s.
