The Pioneer Walk-In Theatre was an open-air theatre which opened in 1942 by Snow Kenna. The Pioneer Theatre screened the World premiere of “A Town like Alice” on 24th July 1956, with the the stars of the film Peter Finch and Virgina McKenna attending in person. The Pioneer Theatre closed in 1984. The theatre building was then used as a market(on the sit-in area) for one year.

The theatre building was then converted in a YHA(Youth Hostel Association) Hostel(Alice Springs YHA), opening on 13th June 1990. The Alice Springs YHA runs a outdoor Picture Gardens(which is still operating).
