The Background of the Euroa Community Cinema

The Euroa Civic Centre Hall previously acted as a cinema until it ceased operation in the early 1980's. Given the relatively limited entertainment opporunities, particulary for children and youth, within Euroa and District, the idea of restoring the Euroca Civic Centre to its former glory to enable its use as the cinema was born!

Council applied and was successfully granted funding from the State Government's Regional Arts Infrastructure Allocation - Regional Cinemas Program to upgrade the hall. The total cost of the project was approximately $80,000 with funding providing by the State Government and Council on a dollar-for-dollar basis.

After a lot of hard work by community members and Council staff, the Euroa Community Cinema was opened in November 2003. The event was formally mentioned and congratulated in the Victorian Parliament by local member Robert Mitchell, Member for Central Highlands, who attended the event on behalf of the State Government.

Initially films were shown once per month, however screenings increased after sufficient demand. The cinema has now transitioned to a digital format and screens movies Saturday evenings and Sunday afternoons, with additional screenings throughout the year.
