Theatre Lives Again

The Art-Deco Star Theatre at Invermay (Launceston) has served as a Vinnie’s (St. Vincent De Paul) store since 1969, but is now being remodelled to reopen as an Arthouse cinema complete with eatery and micro-brewery. Work has been underway since April 2017, and there are hopes to have the historic theatre operational before Christmas 2017.
