Australian Cinemas Map

The AusCinema site is based on information about the location of film exhibition in Australia in the period from 1948 to 1971. It uses information from the Annual Reports of Film Weekly, Australia’s national trade publication from its 1948/49 edition until it ceased publication in 1971. Each year, Film Weekly published a comprehensive list of screening venues, along with seating capacity and operator.

The data is intended for the use of both historical researchers and those with a general interest in the history of Australian film-going.

Contributions to the data are greatly valued and can be submitted via
