Coming Soon




The Star Theatre is one of the finest examples of art-deco cinema architecture in Australia and one of very few of its kind, still in existence. Designed by Tasmanian born architect, Guy Crick, it was opened on the 5th October 1937.



Three Launceston locals have a grand vision that they are working hard to make a reality. Andrew Quaile, Ben Davis and Paul Lee-Archer grew up together in Launceston and have long dreamt of opening a cinema in their home town.



Do you remember The Star and have any interesting stories, photos or memories you would like to share with us? Do you have any memorabilia we could video or photograph? Please get in touch with us today! We’d love to hear from you.
