The historic Anita’s Theatre in Thirroul has undergone a number of significant structural upgrades, owners Live Nation have announced. The multinational entertainment company purchased the New South Wales venue in 2022, joining a portfolio of properties including Melbourne’s Palais Theatre and Brisbane’s Fortitude Music Hall.
“Keeping venues, such as Anita’s Theatre, open is imperative to the ongoing growth of local Australian artists,” president of Live Nation Asia Pacific Roger Field shared in a statement at the time of the acquisition.
Live Nation Announces Upgrades To Anita’s Theatre
Live Nation have now implemented a number of upgrades at the venue, including a new “state-of-the-art” sound system, alongside new and improved stage lighting. A new crowd safety barrier has been put in place as well.
The biggest upgrade is the introduction of a new space in the venue, called The Kings Room. It’ll occupy the main foyer space of the building, which has also been kitted out with new sound and lighting systems. The Kings Room will have a capacity of 120, and host cabaret, comedy, and other smaller shows. It’s also available for private hire.
Artists will be happy to know that the backstage area is in the process of being upgraded too, with air-con and a kitchenette going in. A slew of bands are set to perform at the venue over the coming months, including DMA’s, You Am I, and James Reyne.
