In an effort to keep up with the rapid change in the industry, the Australian Pavilion is taking over a portion of the South East Queensland landscape for 2018.
As part of the plan, the Queensland Pavilion is looking to build a small pavilion with a view to the future and is looking for funding to do so.
The Queensland Pavilion will be the fourth and final project on the Queensland pavilion list to be built after the $25m renovation of the former Victorian Pavilion in Southport.
We are pleased to announce the Queensland Cineplex will have its Queensland pavillion back in 2018.
This new pavilion will provide an immersive environment for our patrons and will provide a space for us to showcase some of the exciting local films that have been made here over the past 12 months.
The Queensland Cineworld will also be home to the Queensland Film Festival in 2018, with films ranging from local films and independent Australian films.
The pavilion is scheduled to open in the early months of 2019.
Queensland Cinephile, Queensland Pavilion Queensland, a 501(c)3 non-profit organisation, has been established to support and preserve the pavillion for future generations of Queenslanders and visitors.
The new Queensland Cinema will be a cultural centre in the heart of Southport, with a range of entertainment programming for the whole family.
The pavilion has already received support from the Queensland Council for Culture, the Southport Council for Cultural Affairs, and the Queensland Department of Tourism.
A further new pavillion is being built in Cairns, in partnership with Queensland Government and the local Cinepac, which will offer local and regional films to visitors in Cirencester and Port Stephens.
The newly announced pavilion at the Queensland Cinema will also provide an open and accessible space for local filmmakers to showcase their films.
The new pavillon will be located at the former Queensland Cinema at the corner of Main Street and Waverley Street, near the Cairn Hotel.
The $50m renovation project at the Victorian Pavilion will also take place over the coming years, with the pavilions new roof now allowing for more views of the city and surrounding environment.
