An army ordnance depot was built in Nungarin during World War II. Among the provisions for the workforce was an amenities block in which were held dances, sports such as badminton, and regular picture shows two or three times a week. These were at first only for the residents(army?), but later the locals were also able to attend. An outdoor theatre was constructed at the west end of the amenities block. The movie screenings stopped in about 1950, the last disposal of the camp equipment and buildings was in 1961, the community took over the camp swimming pool on 1963, and the amenities block(and theatre?) no longer exists.
