Lachlan Plain Studios

March 2012, Sanctum Theatre and The Montsalvat Collective invited the residents of Eltham to ‘buck the inevitable march of time’ and join them for Sanctum Theatre’s Cabinet of Antiquated Recording Devices – a hodge-podge of vague memories and hazy collections, grainy photographs and crackly recordings – at Montsalvat, Eltham.

The Cabinet contained short films on all kinds of antiquated stock – silent films with live soundtracks provided by the Sanctum Theatre house band, as well as performances by Pete Reid and La Bande di Sandro.
