The Arts Centre Port Noarlunga is located in the Old Institute Building on Gawler Street.
The institute has played an important role in the creative and cultural life of the region for many years as a theatre and as the only movie theatre in the Fleurieu Peninsula, and this is continued through its use as a centre for the arts in the south.
The Arts Centre is a flexible arts space with three dedicated gallery spaces, a performance space, rehearsal studio, visual arts studio, drawing and photography, rehearsal studio and meeting room.
The Arts Centre plays home to a number of local arts, craft and theatrical groups. The centre is part of the Out of the Square consortium, a metropolitan entertainment circuit providing the best South Australian performers and talent to entertain audiences.
The Southern Youth Theatre Ensemble is a professionally funded theatre company for young people aged five to 26. The Noarlunga Theatre Company is an amateur company which hosts at least three productions per year.
