Anita’s Theatre in Thirroul, Australia has undergone a number of structural upgrades courtesy of Live Nation.
Live Nation entered regional Australia through a new deal with the venue in July last year, joining other properties such as Melbourne’s Palais Theatre and Brisbane’s Fortitude Music Hall.
Live Nation has now initiated a number of upgrades to the venue, including a new state-of-the art sound system, as well as new and improved stage lighting. A new crowd safety barrier has also been installed.
However, the most significant upgrade is a new space at the venue, called The Kings Room. It will occupy the main foyer space of the building, and has also been fitted with new sound and lighting systems.
The Kings Room will have a capacity of 120 and will host cabaret, comedy and smaller shows. Anita’s Theatre has a seating capacity of 820 and general admission capacity of 1,200.
Anita’s Theatre originally opened its doors in 1925 as the King’s Theatre before operating as a movie cinema and a roller-skating rink. It was reopened in 2007 as Anita’s Theatre, becoming a space for music and live entertainment.
