Alex Theatre St Kilda

2015-2017 | Theatre Operations |Melbourne

Formerly known as George Cinemas on Fitzroy Street, the stylishly refurbished Alex Theatre St Kilda offers a variety of different sized spaces (3 performance spaces, boutique bar and two inter-connecting foyers), where producers can present works, find an audience and take them on a creative journey within a viable, commercial context. The Alex can also provide the “next step” in the creative development process to help producers find a larger audience in the wider market place. In other words, a project can start small and grow over time.
