Malthouse Theatre

Entertainment Venues

Malthouse Theatre collaborates with local and international artists to create inventive performances that cut to the core of the human experience. Malthouse Theatre work explores the world, personally, socially and politically to provoke a dialogue with and within audiences.

The Coopers Malthouse in Melbourne is the dedicated venue: a home for innovation and live experiences that provoke and entertain. A historic beer-making malthouse built in 1892, the building was gifted by Carlton and United Breweries to Playbox Theatre in 1988. Converted into an agile and contemporary theatre complex, the (Malt)house comprises a world-renowned 500-seat Merlyn theatre, the recently refurbished 180-seat Beckett Theatre, the Tower and bespoke workshop.

Renamed The Coopers Malthouse in 2014, the building also accommodates rehearsal rooms and meeting spaces. And of course, there is the Box Office, The Coopers Malthouse Bar and the Café to make your experience at Malthouse Theatre a memorable night out.
