Join the Cinema and Theatre Historical Society for a talk about the fascinating history of the Geelong Theatre.

The Cinema and Theatre Historical Society president, Richard Twentyman will present a talk on the development of the Geelong Theatre.

The Geelong Theatre opened as a live/cinema venue in 1913, with a capacity of close to 1400 in the single auditorium. It has been transformed over the years, firstly into the Village Twin Cinema, and then into the current Village 11.

Richard is a former projectionist at the Geelong Theatre, and has at one time worked on most of the cinemas in Geelong.
