About James Theatre image

JAMES THEATRE – Dungog

The James Theatre is the oldest purpose-built cinema still operating in Australia! But it is much more than that. The James Theatre is a multi-purpose facility hosting films, live performances, dance and film classes and is available for private functions, weddings, educational purposes and events. It is owned by the Dungog Shire Council and is managed by the James Theatre Management Committee.

Enquiries: All enquiries regarding the James Theatre should be directed to the James Theatre Management Committee booking officer, Gregg Parrey, phone 043 55 66 874 or use the Contact Us form.

Donations: The Theatre is a large, grand and very old lady. Donations are welcome to assist with restoration and maintenance and will be gratefully acknowledged. Please contact us.
