Kevin Cork, with son Stuart, on 11th April 1997, at Stuart's Bachelor of Arts degree graduation.

Stuart went to obtain a Law degree after Kevin's demise in 1998.

He now practices as a solicitor with MatthewsFolbigg in Parramatta.


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 Ph.D 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.

Kevin's Ph.D thesis focused on the lives of 66 Greek, and Greek-Kytherian cinema owners in NSW. He managed to follow most until their demise, or return to Greece.

Kevin's work demonstrated the importance of the Hellenic and Kytherian contribution to Australian cinema ownership and history.

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 Chapter's.

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

Entries for Chapters and Appendices of the Ph.D thesis can be sourced by searching under Cork on the internal search engine.
