History repeating

The Heidelberg Film Society is showing The Maltese Falcon tonight at the Heidelberg Theatre in Turnham Ave, Rosanna at 7.15 pm.  Call 9435 9960 for enquiries.  I've never seen it and both The Maltese Falcon and Casablanca are on my list of movies to watch - both were made within a year of each other in the 1940s and star Humphrey Bogart.

The other thing I wanted to mention is Banyule Homestead at 60 Buckingham Drive in Heidelberg.  It's one of Banyule's oldest buildings  with great cultural and heritage significance and located near the Banyule Flats.  There is currently a case before Heritage Victoria as there is a proposed development (consisting of three double-storey dwellings on the site) which may potentially impact the view of the homestead from the Banyule flats and diminish the heritage signifance of the homestead and grounds.

You can write to Heritage Victoria, Level 4, 55 Collins Street, Melbourne 3000 if you wish to show your support for Banyule Homestead.
