• Matt Dann Theatre & Cinema


About the Venue

Proudly managed by the Town of Port Hedland, the Matt Dann Theatre & Cinema is the Pilbara’s performing arts hub and provides a vibrant, high energy theatrical experience for performers and audience members.

The Matt Dann’s main auditorium contains 302 raked seats in a Corner Thrust Style format, much like the Subiaco Arts Centre providing an incredibly intimate atmosphere during performances. Boasting a newly refurbished Technical Department including a motorized winch down Lighting Grid, up to 60 channels of dimming, industry standard control equipment & brand new lamp stock, the centre is fully equipped to tackle a variety of live events with ease. The venue has recently upgraded its cinema capabilities installing a brand new motorized 8.5m x 4m full cinema quality screen and digital cinema projection system that can be utilized for a range of uses, whether it be state of the art cinema screenings to conference style presentations.

The Venue’s foyer space can comfortably accommodate up to 150 patrons in a relaxed performance mode and contains a full stocked refreshment kiosk where you can enjoy a drink before each show. This environment is perfect to host medium sized comedy shows, quiz nights and most recently improvised comedy shows.

The Matt Dann Theatre & Cinema presents new release films, internationally acclaimed theatre pieces throughout the season and is a wonderful facility to hire for a range of other events. Whether you’re promoting a touring artist, local performer, dance concert, conference or are planning an event of any kind, the Matt Dann Theatre & Cinema is the place for you.
