Malthouse Theatre is at once a treasured building, a theatre company, a creative site and an engine for change.

It is also the imaginative expression of 32 full-time staff reaching out to an even bigger number of local, national and international artists, all dedicated to an ongoing conversation with audiences from all walks of life. This conversation chooses contemporary theatre as its vehicle: an annual program of adventurous multi-disciplinary work inspired by writers, directors, designers, choreographers, audio artists and performers. Here the combined possibilities of all the theatre arts are offered centre stage.

The Coopers Malthouse - the 19th century brewery that houses Malthouse Theatre - is also home to The Coopers Malthouse Bar and Cafe. Arrive early for Happy Hour or a pre-show dinner and stay and play after the performance. Plus, the Cafe is always open during the day for lunch, and has free Wi-fi.

Catch any tram down St Kilda Road and alight at Grant Street (Stop 17). Or catch the No.1 South Melbourne tram and alight at Stop 19 on Sturt Street. Alternatively, the theatre is a 12 minute walk from Flinders Street Train Station and Federation Square.

There are bicycle racks outside the theatre and also a station for Melbourne Bike Share on Sturt St outside the theatre. Helmets can be rented from the IGA on Sturt Street.

Car parks are available on the streets surrounding The Coopers Malthouse. For people holding a disability parking pass, parking spaces are located as close as possible to the entrance of The Coopers Malthouse, both on Sturt St and Dodds St.
