The Civic Theatre in Gordon Street in 1940

Mackay City Cinemas in Gordon Street (formerly the Civic Theatre) has been given an approval for demolition by Mackay Regional Council

I spoke to Mayor Greg Williamson who told me that there was nothing Council could do to refuse the application

Whether boutique accommodation, a craft brewery or something else, the Mayor has flagged working with the owners to make use of the old art deco building to preserve another piece of our history

And thank you to the Mackay Museum for the photo of  the Civic Theatre in 1940
