The Greeks in Bingara

According to the local newspaper, no other event in the history of Bingara caused more interest and excitement than the opening of the Roxy. Saturday the 28th of March, 1936. The Roxy was packed to the rafters and many were turned away. A short stocky Greek man, George Psaltis from Peters & Co, the company behind the project, stood up before an excited crowd and says it’s the proudest moment of his life. Such a golden moment in the history of Bingara. Then six months later, the venture was broke and the whole thing folded. Why such a lavish project in a small country town?

Launching late June… the Bingara Soundtrail.
