Map showing Dungog James Theatre

The James Theatre was the social hub of Dungog, not only for its film screenings, but its balls and dances, catered for by the Wattle Club ladies. The original kitchen, still in the building today, shows just what a challenge it would have been for those hard working ladies, who served supper to accommodate the large numbers of patrons.

The Theatre fell on hard times and fell into disrepair until it was purchased by the Dungog Shire Council in 1979 to provide a large function centre for the community. Cinema screenings were continued during the 1980s and 90s and until 2007 by a dedicated Ken Reeve, in spite of the increasing challenges posed by television and videos. Since then the community has worked to keep the Theatre building operational for films, live performances and functions. Please visit the web site for more information.
