After 11-months, Enmore Theatre reopens with a revamped new look and an epic line-up of live music.
When we think of live music in Sydney, it’s hard not to think about Enmore Theatre. As Sydney’s longest-running live performance venue, this spot has been a firm favourite for local and international acts for decades. From live comedy to cultural performances and killer music, Enmore Theatre has played host to it all.
But since March 2020, the venue has been shut to the public. Enmore Theatre was closed temporarily due to the impact of COVID-19 restrictions on indoor performances.
So, the owners of the venue (Century Venues) took it as a sign to go ahead with a planned restoration of the space. In fact, Enmore Theatre is one of Sydney’s only theatres from the art deco period that is still in its original condition. While some renovations were made in the 20s and 30s, the venue has been virtually untouched since then.
Over the past 11 months, Enmore Theatre has undergone a major refurbishment. They’ve brought back the theatre’s side wing balconies plus an original 24-metre art deco bomber light. The team has also restored the theatre’s ceiling and added an extra 2.5km of LED strip lighting to elevate the performance experience.
To celebrate, Enmore Theatre is hosting the Sounds of Sydney Re-opening Gala tonight ($55 per person). Plus, there’s a stack of live acts to book into in the weeks to come as well.
The iconic Australian music act Midnight Oil is hitting the stage for an intimate one-off show. There’s also shows by The Smith Street Band, Lime Cordiale, Tones and I, Mallrat, Thelma Plum and so much more.
Enmore Theatre reopens on Monday, February 22nd, 2021. To find out more and secure tickets to your next show, click here.
