That really peaves me off! As if Geoffrey Rush even knows what the proposal is about, let alone care about the future of the QSM.
Its quite funny, I emailed that "save the regent site" and got a surprising response
I take your point, but many of the original features of the theatre are either in the Showcase theatre or, according to my sources, in storage.
My preference is for a 2000-2500 seat foyer to be restored in the style of the original, and that's why the pictures are there.
I am astonished by people who are winging about this, obviously they have a backward mindset and don't care about the proper preservation/rejuvenation of historical architecture.
Media articles like these spin up all this criticism themselves. I wouldn't be surprised if the Brisbane times paid Geoffrey Rush for an interview. Shame on them, they are no longer my home page.
Although I'm quite surprised that practically all Brisbane forumers/people I've meet like this project.
Sorry about my huge rant >>. I just don't get people sometimes.
