Star Theatre Functions
When the Star Theatre was built in 1937, it was such a technological marvel that it rivalled even the Roxy Theatre in New York. Over 80 years on, the Star now combines old world charm with cutting-edge technology.
Private Cinema Hire
Entertain your guests in a private cinema. Indulge clients, reward staff or celebrate your birthday with the luxury of a private screening. Pick from our selection of new releases or in-season films, request a classic (this will incur a film hire cost) or screen your own film! Our fully licensed bar is also available for pre or post movie drinks.
Great coffee, endless popcorn and unbeatable A/V are just some of the perks of holding your next event at The Star.
Choose from several unique rooms, catering from a small group in our boardroom, to 250 people across both levels of our large auditorium. All spaces are acoustically-treated, with natural light or total black-out. It’s up to you.
Fancy a coffee? Our barista can knock you up a coffee, tea and locally-made snack from our cafe. Not to mention an assortment of Tassie wines and local brews too.
Range of Packages
Whatever your budget, we offer a range of options. Add or subtract depending on your needs.
Whether it’s a private film screening, boardroom presentation or large corporate event, bring out the wow factor at your next event.
And now your very own function space.
