Star Cinema is in the grand Eaglehawk Town Hall, ten minutes from View Street in Central Bendigo.
The Cinema, known as Star Pictures, began operating almost 100 years ago, but closed in the 1960s.
It was reopened as Star Cinema by Joan Rodgers, in 1999, with couches instead of hard seats and a bar. When Joan retired in 2004, it was kept operating by the Star Community Cinema Association.
Star Cinema uses the original projection room and ticket booth, and is a much valued part of the Eaglehawk community.
