The Treasury Theatre located at Lower Plaza, 1 Macarthur St, East Melbourne.
Located in the east of the city centre, beneath Treasury Place adjacent to the new Treasury Building.
The State Film Centre opened in the 1960's and was built for the Victorian Film Authority.
Designed to collect and maintain a film library for general public consumption, the State Film Centre was established in 1946.
It became a leading cultural institution for not only the archiving of Australian and international cinematic works but in supporting the Victorian production industry, providing regional lending services and broadening audience reach through the use of mobile projection units.
With technological change, the Centre adapted to new media platforms and broadened its collections focus to include emerging filmmakers and student works. It evolved from a collection-based institution to a hub for screening and advocacy and increased its role as an invaluable education resource.
Into the 1990s work commenced on plans to establish the Australian Centre for the Moving Image as part of the Federation Square project and on January 1, 2002, the Australian Centre for the Moving Image was officially established by the Film Act 2001 (Victoria).
Today. State Film Centre has been re-named Treasury Theatre.
The wood panelling on the walls has been restored and is now listed on the State Heritage Register.
