11 McNamara Street, Queenstown TAS, Australia
Built at a cost of over 5000 pounds by the Paragon Picture Co Pty Ltd as a “talkie theatre”.
The Paragon Theatre officially opened on October 28, 1933 and a capacity house of 1150 were enthralled by Mae West in “She Done Him Wrong” and Edward G. Robinson in “Tiger Shark.”
The theatre enjoyed capacity crowds for decades until the emergence of home video hire in the late 1970′s. Patronage declined to the point where the theatre closed its doors in 1985. Soon after, the building was gutted of all ground floor seating and more than half of the dress circle was demolished to house an indoor cricket stadium. Within a few years, that also closed, and the theatre was abandoned and left to its fate.
Head down for a tour and hear what happened all the years after closing down and what the future holds for The Paragon Theatre.
Old classic Movies are available most evenings, check their website for more details on here.

Mt Owen MTB
In every mountain bike destination that DirtArt develop, they search for something unique. What will set the destination apart?
With a massive elevation range, wildly rocky terrain, and jaw-dropping mountain vistas, our Queenstown MTB Project didn’t have the team working too hard to find key strengths!
The trails will include over 10km of pedal-access riding loops through the foot hills of the towering Mount Owen. These loops will cater for beginner and intermediate riders, and offer a taste of what the full trail network has to offer.
To access the remaining big mountain trails, you’ll need to book an uplift. These trails are unlike anything else in Australia- mind bending views and rugged, wild trails take riders on a journey like no other!
