Dear Cinema Pioneers,

I’ve been informed that Hoyts veteran Ray Hasse passed away last Thursday.

Ray commenced in the cinema industry with Watermans Theatres who were based in Adelaide. He later transferred to Melbourne as Concessions Manager for Hoyts when they purchased the Watermans operations. Ray and his wife Joan moved back to Adelaide when Ray retired.  He was 94 years old. 

Ray and Joan were well known here and and made many friends in Victoria.
The funeral for Ray is to be held Tuesday morning in Adelaide.

For those wishing more information or to contact Joan, her contact details are:

                                  9A Jetty Road
                                  Brighton   5048
                                  Tel  –  (08)  82982893

Our condolence to Joan and family.

Kind regards,

David Kilderry
