Cinema Research 3: Appendix 3: Age at which Greek-Australian Exhibitors arrived in Australia.

During the 1990's KEVIN CORK undertook extensive research into cinema's in Australia.

Tragically, he died before completing his work, but most of the chapters of his Thesis, were completed.

His wife and children have kindly given permission for his work to be reproduced.

Most Australian's would be unaware of the degree to which Greeks, and particularly Kytherian Greeks dominated cinema ownership in Australia - especially in New South Wales.

This is Appendix 3 of Kevin Cork's previously unpublished Ph.D thesis.

In Appendix 3, Kevin Cork provides the ages at which the 66 Greek, and Greek-Kytherian cinema owners he chose to be the subject of his study arrived in Australia. He managed, whilst writing his Ph.D to follow most until their demise, or their return to Greece.

The importance of the Hellenic and Kytherian contribution to Australian cinema ownership and history is clearly demonstrated in Appendix 3.

It is difficult to know how to pass on to Kytherians the results of Kevin Cork's important research's.

In the end, I felt that the results should be passed on in the most extensive way - i.e. in full re-publication of all Chapter's and Appendices.

Eventually all Chapters and Appendices will appear on the kythera-family web-site.

Other entries can be sourced by searching under "Cork" on the internal search engine.

I have also placed him under People, subsection, High Achievers, for reasons that become obvious once you have read the contents of his thesis.

You will notice that information for some entries is incomplete. If you can provide information that will complete such entries please post to the kythera-family web-site.
