All End Credits Film Club members and supporters will have an opportunity to
help us secure a dedicated cinema space in the new Cairns Entertainment
Centre by taking part in the community consultation below.

Our vision is of a small cinema, solely for film and digital media, and a
projection box that could also project to a screen in an outside
amphitheatre space through a hatch in the wall, giving Cairns a permanent
non-commercial indoor/outdoor cinema space.

³Talk to us² 
say Cairns Entertainment Precinct Planners

The Cairns Entertainment Precinct will take a giant step forward on Tuesday
(3 May 2011) when members of the public get to tell designers what, as a
community, they¹d like to see incorporated in the masterplanning stage of
the project.
During two community consultation sessions, architects Cox Rayner,
Cairns-based CA Architects and other key consultants, will encourage people
to share their ideas in face-to-face discussions.
³This will be a listening exercise for the design teams because key
stakeholders such as business operators and members of the public will be
asked to tell us what the community wants considered in this stage of the
Cairns Entertainment Precinct roll out,² Mayor Val Schier said.
³The consultation sessions are not about unveiling a final design.  More
importantly, they are being held to invite the community to actively reveal
their ideas in this early phase of the project¹s development.²
The Mayor said it  was invaluable for the design of such an Australian icon
that interested members of the general public, industry groups, and ultimate
users (be they audience members or potential performers and their families)
be invited to have input this way.
³Whilst we have wonderfully creative specialists working on the Precinct,
this is how much we and they value the community¹s ideas too,²  Cr
Schier said.  " In many cases on Tuesday, members of the public will get to
talk one-on-one with the design teams, and we would encourage that
Tuesday¹s community consultation will be the first of a number of similar
forums  planned for each architectural design stage of the Cairns
Entertainment Precinct.
Date:               Tuesday 3 May 2011
Location:        Civic Reception Rooms
                        Cairns Regional Council
                        119 Spence Street Cairns
Times:             3:00 pm - 5:00 pm; or
                        6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Now is the time for us to get our wishes and desires for this new community
facility on record and hopefully secure a permanent, dedicated venue for
arthouse, alternative and non-commercial film in Cairns.
