Venue: Cairns Civic Theatre
Monday 23, November 2015 - 11:00am
The Cairns Civic Theatre was the first purpose-built theatre in regional Queensland.The need for a public hall was first felt in 1884 when it was proposed to the Council that a hall, to cost about 1,000 pounds, should be built. That was the beginning of a long story of recurring controversy culminating in the eventual opening of the theatre on 31 May, 1974, by the Prime Minister of the day, Gough Whitlam. At that time, Cairns had a population of 33,000 people.
The Cairns Civic Centre, as it was known at the time, was built at a cost of approximately $1.1 million. The building was designed by Cairns architects, Messrs. B.T. Lynn, E. H. Oribin and J. L. McElroy, and constructed by the Cairns based firm of J.T. Watkins Ltd.
On the Corner of Florence and Sheridan Streets, the Civic Theatre is in a very central location.
