The ACT Heritage Council has begun the process for the Cinema Center building on Bunda Street in Civic to be heritage listed.

The Council recently provisionally registered the four-storey building, designed by iconic Canberra architect Dr Enrico Taglietti, opening comment from the community.

The 500-seat, basement Center Cinema officially opened on 5 October 1966 and played an important role in Canberra’s cultural life for 37 years, until it closed on 1 June 2003.

ACT Heritage Council chair David Flannery said the Institute of Architects had nominated the building in 2018, citing Taglietti as one of only two architects in Canberra to have won the Institute’s Gold Medallion, as well as designing a number of important buildings across Canberra.

Taglietti designed the building at the behest of developer Dr Darrell Killen and it remains as one of his culturally influential private, commercial commissions.
