Lindy and husband Eddie Tamir have created Moving Story Entertainment as an umbrella company to conglomerate their long-established Classic Cinema in Elsternwick with their more recent developments at the Cameo Cinema in Belgrave, the LIDO in Hawthorn and the RITZ Cinema in Sydney, They are now streaming movies online via Classic at Home, creating a viable Video on Demand Platform to Rent or Buy an extensive back catalogue and the latest movies, as they can no longer have patrons in their cinemas, except in Sydney where social distancing is practised.

Always innovative and diverse, they are still going ahead with the Jewish International Film Festival (JIFF), the Children’s Film Festival (CHIFF), the Fantastic Film Archive (FFFA) and Female Gaze. The Sydney based Hungarian Israeli Cake Shop Kurtosh has opened in the LIDO Arcade and will be opening soon next to the Classic Cinema. Last week, Erin Rosenberg participated with Danny Ben-Moshe in a Webinar Q&A on the story behind Shalom Bollywood, which is featured at the end of the segment.
