Previously known as the state theatre, it originally opened in 1929. It was renowned for the largest seating capacity in Australia, holding up to 1500 guests. Now divided into two separate venues, with Venue one (upstairs) and Venue two (downstairs). The downstairs venue consists of unique architecture with a large stage and signature cabaret style booths. Upstairs is a little smaller featuring a stage, surround sound and a cinema size screen.
Known as a live music venue, it is also recognised for the events that it hosts. Fashion shows, launches, cocktail functions, presentations and open night parties from major industry companies hold their functions at the Forum Theatre.
