 An illustrated talk on the fascinating history of the Geelong Theatres.

CATHS President, Richard Twentyman presented an illustrated talk on

The History and Development of Geelong Theatres.

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.
