Running the Daylesford Cinema out of the former court house in Camp Street, now the Daylesford Neighbourhood Centre, would not be feasible, a study has found.
The study looked into the technical feasibility of modifying the building to establish and operate a cinema, heritage conditions that applied to the court house, and the implications for the ongoing operation of the DNC.
Daylesford Community Theatre president Gina Lyons said the committees of both organisations had worked collaboratively to seek a home for the Daylesford Cinema. “While the court house option did not end up being sensible to pursue, the process undertaken by the steering committee proved to be pivotal and meant that the use of limited financial resources to undertake a more detailed feasibility was unnecessary. DCT will keep exploring viable options to enable the community to benefit from a community theatre.”
