Castlemaine's Theatre Royal has been entertaining since 1858 and is still showing strong today!

Catch the latest release quality, art-house films, Met Opera screenings, or experience top national and international touring artists who regularly appear live in concert in this authentic goldfields Theatre and local icon.

Delicious meals - from the Royal's Mexican Cantina adjacent to the cinema - and also fine wines can be enjoyed in front of the movies (Wed to Sun) and most live shows are in a candle-lit cabaret setting with meal packages on offer.

For those who can't bring themselves to leave, the Royal's luxury backstage accommodation is literally behind the silver screen and is full of historic pictures and movie memorabilia.

On the first Sunday of every month visitors can explore the Castlemaine Artists Market which meanders through the grounds of the Theatre. A unique market of over 45 stalls showcasing local hand-made treasures from this diverse and artistic community.

Relive the golden years of Central Victoria and Hollywood with a visit or even an overnight stay at this heritage-listed Victorian treasure.
