Cinema One under heritage Hobart outfitters Routley’s has laid vacant since Robin Williams got trapped in Jumanji in 1995 (or was it 1969?). Previously a news theatrette, a Chinese restaurant and a meatpacker’s, Cinema One today plays occasional host to 21st birthday parties and this year’s Open House Hobart events program. Though its projectors no longer beam celluloid classics, the cinema itself is chock full of memories and maybe even a stray jaffa or two – and there’s no denying it contains the best example of mid-century carpet in all of Hobart.
