Community members are now able to view a fly-through of the Margaret River Cultural Centre to get an insight into the soon-to-be-constructed upgraded facilities.
The new-look centre will operate by providing a central foyer area as well as an upstairs foyer which will service the refurbished theatre and the new multi-purpose facility as well as special functions held in the basketball court.
The project will make a terrific architectural statement which will provide wonderful community facilities both for today’s families and their children’s children in the future.
New seating and climate control will mean that patrons will be able to enjoy movies, concerts and productions in comfort.
Council also recently made the decision to increase the seating in the main theatre from 300 to 450 seats which will mean that end of year school concerts and large events such as the Melbourne Comedy Festival will be able to take in 50% more people in the audience in comfort.
For anyone interested in the financial arrangements the details are as follows:
