Rebuilding a heritage Empire

BE Collective’s Brad Head & John Tuxworth attended the recent reopening celebration of the historic Empire Theatre.  Brad & John were guests of the theatre in recognition of BE Collective’s contribution to the $6.32M Heritage refurbishment, completed 22nd March 2019. Preserved elements of the heritage listed theatre include the elegant art deco proscenium arch, decorative sconces, and bomber-light, dating back to 1933. The 1500 Seat theatre now incorporates low level, low displacement air-conditioning, and excellent sound engineering.

A key supporter of the theatre is Heritage Bank. Heritage is Toowoomba born & bred – and was awarded Bank of the Year for customer satisfaction in 2018. Heritage’s CEO Mr Peter Lock proudly opened the evening’s proceedings.

Hutchinson Builders completed the refurbishment, adding the Empire to their catalogue of theatre work which now includes the Palais Theatre in St Kilda, the Billie Brown Theatre in South Brisbane, and the Brisbane Power House. The Empire is the jewel in the crown of the Toowoomba Regional Arts and Community Centre (TRACC) complex.
