If you drive down Invermay Rd you will see the classic art-deco façade of The Star Theatre. It is a classic piece of architecture from the golden age of cinema and it operated from 1937 to 1969. After that it was an outlet for St Vincent de Paul for many years but now it has been given a new lease of life as a cinema once more.
The Star is now an independently owned cinema with a bar and cafe serving quality Tasmanian food and drinks. It also holds live events, conferences and events.
The Star Theatre in Invermay is one the finest examples of art-deco cinema architecture in Australia and one of the few still in existence. Designed by Tasmanian born architect, Guy Crick.
In addition it is a venue for the community of Launceston that can be used for a range of purposes including live music, comedy, conferences and special events. A bar and cafe offers fine Tasmanian food and beverages that can be enjoyed before, during or after the movie.The films we offer are an eclectic mix of old and new, from cult-classics to new independent releases, there is something for everyone.
