A mystery in the Mt Eden landscape for locals and visitors alike, the Crystal Palace on its face appears a dilapidated cinema. The only thing I personally had been able to discern from walking past it everyday over the last three years was that it seemed to be used as a clubhouse for cult followers of ‘The Room’.
Three guys are looking to unveil the mystery. Karl Sheridan, Robin Gee, and Taylor MacGregor are each part of Monster Valley, a production company that works on all things creative (seriously, all things – their website shows they work across film, events, photography and community arts projects). The method is the doco Please Open, a title gleaned from the small flaking gold lettering on the front door, doubling as an imperative to bring the space back to life.
