Join us at the Cook Shire Hall as Australian Theatre live presents four of the very best live theatre productions from the 2022 Sydney Festival, all recorded live, and presented to you on the silver screen.

The venue opens 30 minutes prior to each screening. Limited seating will be available at the back of the hall so you are encouraged to bring your own cushions, blankets and bean bags to help you get comfortable and settled in before the movies start. 

If your community group would like to fundraise by selling cinema-style snacks and refreshments, please contact Waratah Nicholls on 4082 0500.
