Burrill Lake Open Air Theatre

Burrill Lake Open Air Theatre was situated at Burrill Lake, 200 klms south of Sydney, New South Wales, Australia. A documentary has been made on this theatre which opened in 1946 and demolished in 1999.

It had half a roof, corrugated iron walls and canvas seats slung betwwen iron poles which were on wooden supports. It was no ornamental picture palace, but it did have a unique atmosphere all it’s own. It had 500 seats and space for 700 cars. A housing estate is now on the site.

I ran the Burrill Lake Open Air Theatre between 1985 and 1990. It now sits at the bottom of the Ulladulla Tip. I was fortunate to take VHS video of inside and out and have this doco on the theatre called MAGIC LANTERN on Youtube at: (you can also copy and paste)
