The Blyth Cinema was established in May 2005 in Blyth (Pop. 400) by a local community group to bring a city quality cinematic experience to residents and visitors of the Clare Valley region and beyond (target population 8,000). Investment was made in the highest quality 5.1 dolby surround sound (Tannoy speakers) and Digital equipment and purchased acoustic curtaining, constructed an angled floor and new toilets. The candy bar provides treats, complete with popcorn & jaffas! Quality seating was purchased for 105 persons. The room is 12 metres long by 9 metres wide, screen width of 5.0 metres. The building is fully air-conditioned.
Movies are normally screened every Wednesday, Friday and Saturday evenings, Sunday pm and regularly during school holidays, but are happy to cater for group bookings at other times (eg on a week day or week night). Please phone or email and ask for a prospectus of activities in and around Blyth.
Approx 30 volunteers man the screenings on a roster system. The Cinema has had many groups through, from Probus, Rotary, Car & Seniors Clubs to schools and general interest groups. The local Blyth Community Hall committee can supply a morning tea of a quality that only country cooks can provide, and many groups enjoy lunch at the Blyth Hotel before or after a movie.
This is one of the few Cinemas in Australia, perhaps the only one, where your group can choose the time you’d like to see a movie on the big screen, and you can even suggest the movie you’d like to see.
The Cinema has won several awards since it’s opening.
