Kyogle Cinemas began in 1999 when Stuart and Margaret Everett decided to open a movie theatre in Kyogle, NSW.
Stuart had a love for early cinema and was keenly interested in collecting vintage cinema projection equipment and used these projectors and lanterns in his shows which would take you through the history of cinema projection going right back to the late 19th century.
Kyogle Cinemas has three screens and the third, small and intimate theatre was where Stuart’s shows were presented. The two main theatres screen the latest major movie releases.
While Stuart and Margaret operated the cinema the name changed to Richmond Valley Cinemas before closing for a short time when Stuart and Margaret retired.
Due to keen community interest, the cinema reopened In February 2012 as a not for profit under the name of Kyogle Community Cinema. The various affairs of the cinema were handled by the “Growing Kyogle” group, the staff, many volunteers and members of the community. It was during this period that the Cinema evolved from analogue to digital projection.
Then on the 13th October 2016 the movie theatre was reopened by the younger Everett family after a two week closure for major seating refurbishment. This opened a new chapter in the cinema’s history. The name returned to its original name of Kyogle Cinemas and received various upgrades attending to patron comfort.
