Daylesford Cinema is a Not For Profit, Community owned and operated Theatre bringing Film back to Daylesford for the first time in 50 years.

The 99 seat Theatre is run by a group of volunteers, with all profits going back into the theatre.

Daylesford Cinema offers facilities for live productions, providing a venue for community groups to showcase their talent as well as hosting various forms of entertainment.
The cinema is currently closed  due to  construction of the Hepburn Shire Hub which will include a brand new 
Community Cinema, Library, and Shire Offices, due to open sometime mid-2018.
In the meantime we are operating from a "pop Up" cinema in the recently opened facilities in Victoria Park

History

The Cinema opened on Boxing Day in 1929 with the silent motion picture ‘The Student Prince’ accompanied by a specially arranged orchestra.

The cinema had a seating capacity of 859 (306 in the dress circle and 553 in the stalls).

Sound was installed in the cinema in March 1930. Cinemascope was introduced in 1955 to accommodate a wider screen.

The cinema closed its doors in 1963.
