Pomona is a town located at the base of Mount Cooroora at the northern end of the Sunshine Coast, Queensland, Australia. The town was originally called Pinbarren siding and was renamed Pomona in 1906, after the Roman goddess of fruit and orchards. Pomona is 166 kilometres north of Brisbane Now it is a heritage and lifestyle town and formally declared the region’s ‘friendliest town’ (2004 and 2010), Pomona was first settled by Europeans in the late 1880s, but had been home to the Gubbi Gubbi indigenous peoples for thousands of years before that. Early settlers collected timber from the area. The railway to Pomona was operating in 1891, opening the land to farming. Pomona is notable for three things: a relaxed streetscape of distinctive timber and art deco buildings, the heritage-listed Majestic Theatre and the annual King of the Mountain race up the nearby, Mount Cooroora.( I was told the course from the town centre return has been clocked at under 25 minutes !! )The Majestic, built in 1921, is claimed to be the world’s oldest continuously operating silent movie theatre built for that purpose. However, it is not the first theatre in the world in which silent films were screened. The Majestic has been a community-owned enterprise since October 2006.
Australian musician Darren Hanlon’s album “Fingertips and Mountaintops” was entirely recorded in the Majestic Theatre.
