Enjoy one of the world’s most unique cinematic and live performance venues under the Outback Queensland sky.

The Royal Theatre Winton is operated by not-for-profit group, Winton Movies Inc. and is the home of extraordinary event experiences from seeing your favourite stars on the silver screen to hosting your own business, arts or cultural event in a unique setting.

Winton Movies Inc. is building on the Evert family’s lifetime preservation of the theatre and supporting tourism in western Queensland. Our purpose is centred on promoting film and cultural experiences for the benefit of the local Winton community and the Queensland Outback by reinvigorating the magic of the theatre into a world-class facility.

We’ll see you next season

The Royal Theatre is currently closed for the summer and will reopen in late March 2022. We look forward to seeing you then.
