Huskisson Pictures is located in the seaside town of Huskisson, on the corner Owen St & Sydney Street.
It is probably the most iconic and photographed building in the town.
The building was constructed in 1913 by the Dent family (local ship builders) as a community hall for their employees. The hall has been used as a Church, School, Library, Public Hall, Dance & Concert venue and Theatre. Movies have been screened here since the early 50’s.
In August 1990, the hall underwent major renovations to make the building into a permanent cinema. The exterior was left as original as possible with only a new roof, new entrance & exit doors and a coat of paint. The interior was completely refurbished, with new foyer, toilets, carpet, seats, curtains, sound and projection equipment. The surrounding grounds were completely landscaped with trees, garden beds, courtyard, paths and seating. The garden has won the “best commercial Garden” both in local and district garden competition.
Huskisson Pictures opens weekends and selected weekdays during the school term and every day during NSW school holidays (except Good Friday and Christmas Day) showing the latest releases and has a modest price structure.
As well as all the newest releases and technology the cinemas features on the calendar of the Sydney Travelling Film Festival and National Theatre Live and also welcomes online booking, see website for details.
