A new lease on life for original Rathmines Theatre
24th July 2020
Really happy to see the former Rathmines Community Hall reopened today and be reborn as Rathmines Theatre again.
The original building was established in the 1940s and served as a theatre and gymnasium for the RAAF base nearby, but later became the community hall when the council took it over in the 60s.
It's been a long time closed after a series of problems, but a $3.3m renovation by Lake Macquarie council which was jointly funded with the State Government has produced a fantastic new theatre. It's also home to a local heritage centre.
Really thrilled with the result. The council will be taking small group tours through the theatre next month (phone 4921-0556 to book).
