The building in which the Warragul Cinema Centre occupies has a long and interesting history. Situated in the central business district it has been the primary entertainment venue for Warragul and surrounding areas since the 1930’s when Mr. W.A Lawson built and operated an impressive cinema and live theatre.
From the 1930’s to 1950’s the building underwent a series of re-developments. With a seating capacity of 960 complete with stage, dress circle and stalls and near perfect acoustics, this building was the venue for all-live shows and public hall events such as school speech night’s etc. within the area. It proudly boasts the appearance of the renowned pianist, Winifred Artwell who played to a packed house. Even the local boy, Lionel Rose boxed at this venue. It was and still is the hub of entertainment for the district.
