Watch your favourite Australian theatre at your local cinema.


You can now watch great Australian plays at your local cinema, with the launch of Australian National Theatre – Live (ANT-Live).

Founded by Grant Dodwell, Raj Sidhu and Peter Hiscock, ANT-Live are filming Australia’s most loved theatre productions and bringing them to cinemas near you.

“Our ultimate aim is to stimulate a greater interest in live theatre, to encourage and promote writers, performers and practitioners, and create a resource for students and theatre lovers across the country”, says Dodwell.

ANT-Live will launch in Sydney and Melbourne in April, with the Griffin Theatre Company’s acclaimed production of David Williamson’s EMERALD CITY, features Lucy Bell, Mitchell Butel, Jennifer Hagan, Kelly Paterniti, Ben Winspear and Gareth Yuen.

Following productions will include Mary Rachel Brown’s multi-award winning, The Dapto Chaser, STC’s famous The Wharf Review and Geoffrey Atherden’s Liberty Equality Fraternity, screening in cinemas across Australia and New Zealand.
