The theatre is closed for the 2023 season. We look forward to seeing you in Easter 2024.

leading role

Throughout its history, the Royal Theatre has been sustained by the community. It’s the patronage and contributions of movie-goers that have kept the experience of the theatre alive. Now is your chance to show support and bring this building back to life. With a new projection room, more seating, refurbished flooring, an upgraded museum and of course the Candy Bar, we need and thank you for your support.



The existing theatre flooring is made up of bricks recovered and recycled after the fire of the Royal Mail Hotel in 1938. After 83 years, the bricks are uneven and damaged. Significant works are now required for the safety of guests and to sustain the authenticity and history of the building.

Brick Coin is the primary 2022 fundraiser as we seek to raise $75,000, which will include a $25,000 donation from Creative Partnerships Australia if we meet our targets.

In return for your coin ($250), we will restore the bricks in 2023 and proudly display your name in The Royal Theatre Winton.
