The Avoca Beach Theatre opened in December 1951 and is a charming single-screen cinema an hour and a half north of Sydney, Australia in the small village of Avoca Beach. It sits in a garden setting just 60 yards from a fantastic surf beach. The theatre, with originally 500 seats, runs all day, six days a week with mainly art house movies.
The building is free standing, with a funky foyer full of memobilia. French doors open onto a terrace and a view through to the sea, past the towering Norfolk pine. This is the prettiest cinema in Australia and one of a dying breed of single screens.
Sadly, the owners want to turn it into three screens, completely killing the existing charm. A spirited campaign is underway to stop this from happening. If you would like to help by writing a letter or arousing some overseas interest please email Mike Rubbo at .au
The Avoca Beach Theatre was closed in May 2006 and re-opened under new management in September 2006.
