Help us restore Devonport's Victoria Theatre. We need to raise $200,000 to kick start the project.
This historic theatre is now a thriving cinema and live venue after the trust saved it from permanent closure.
While the theatre now has all the latest cinema equipment, the foyer and facilities are crowded and worn. The cramped foyer urgently needs upgrading and we have well advanced architectural plans that will enlarge the space and improve the experience for our audiences. The Victoria Theatre Trust needs to raise $200,000 for the restoration of the foyer.
The Vic is a special place - built in 1912 it is a listed heritage New Zealand historic building as is the oldest purpose-built cinema in the Southern Hemisphere.
If we raise $200,000, the Trust will be eligible for grants from major institutional funders such as the Lotteries Commission and Foundation North.
